The Holy Trinity, pervading everyone from first to last, from head to foot, binds them all together... The saints in each generation, joined to those who have gone before, and filled like them with light, become a golden chain, in which each saint is a separate link, united to the next by faith, works, and love. So in the One God they form a single chain which cannot quickly be broken.
(Symeon the New Theologian, in Centuries, quoted in Ware, The Orthodox Church,
New Edition, Penguin Books, London, 1997, p. 255,6.)
Mark Markish created a Web Site dedicated to New Martyrs for Christ. When Mark decided that the New Martyrs site needed a new permanent home, he gave what he developed to All Saints of North America Church. We are grateful for his generous offering to the Orthodox Community.
