St Mary of Egypt

Here at Living Maronite we are huge fans of Sr Vassa Larin – an Orthodox Sister with a distinct sense of humour. Her page and social media platforms are very informative – check them out. On 1 April in the Maronite Church we celebrate the feast of St Mary of Egypt, an important Eastern Saint and monastic. Her story is particularly poignant for those struggling with addiction, especially of the sexual kind. Watch this 8 minute video on her life here.
