I have had a very hard past year, full of misery and pain, not knowing "who" I was or "what" I was doing...not even caring for my life. I cried out one day when I couldn't take it anymore and screamed" If you exist(angels, for I always had believed)why won't you help me! because you don't exist!" I said. I was then very calm and taken through my house to find out that they were there...everywhere in my house....probably 30 of them..statues, candle-holders,books, etc....I felt their presence....Then I was at my grandmother's...visiting, when it was very quiet one afternoon we decided to go read...I decided to try to "listen" more..to let the angels talk to me..I asked their names...I was told "dabar, Gabe,and celeste"..then one day I hear it in my head again..."i am dabar"...so I "google" the words...angel named "dabar" and I get "Hebrew for the WORD, word of GOd"....Messenger of God's Word..the "dabar"...I was so moved I just cried and said that I would listen from now on...see through Angel eyes, pray for Clarity, Wisdom, and a Pure heart....and my life has changed ever since...I often try to connect with them to help guide me in the direction of God's Will....to always live God's WIll...NOT my own. I have learned to quit talking so much and LISTEN.........

So often we hear people or even ourselves excuse an action by saying "I was only following orders." But for Nereus and Achilleus this excuse could not stand in the face of the cross. Everything we know from authority about the two first- century martyrs comes from ... continue reading
