St. Tamara the Great

Christ is risen! Joyous feast! Today is the feast of St. Tamara the Great, Queen of Georgia. Her reign is remembered as Georgia's golden age and she herself is remembered for her deep piety and her refusal to accept Islam despite the pressures of neighboring Muslim rulers to do so. At the end of her life St. Tamara retired to the Bardzia Caves Monastery. More on her life can be found here. May her blessing and prayers be with us all!
