Quote from the Monk Martyr Michael of St Savvas


The king then, full of wrath, said: “Do either of two things: deny thy faith or choose a bit­ter death.” The ath­lete of Christ answered:  “Do thou one of three things: leave me to go to my elder, for I have done no wrong; or send me to Christ with mar­tyr­dom; or become a Chris­t­ian and reign for eter­ni­ty in the heavens.”
