    Just another miracleJust another miracleJust another miracleJust another miracle If you ever go to Europe, you will probably visit dozens

    of churches. The most beautiful buildingsin Greece, Germany,

    France, and other placesare

    churches! The first one you visit, you

    say, Wow! Amazing! The second

    one, you say, Pretty cool! But the

    tenth one, you might just say, Oh.

    Another big church.

    But each one is a masterpiece. And

    each one probably took years and

    years to build!

    Today, we hear about yet another

    miracle that our Lord did for a per-

    son. Once again, He heard about a person who was paralyzedhe couldnt

    walk. Jesus wanted to help the man. So He did. He healed him, and

    changed his life forever.

    In the Bible, we read about so many miracles that Jesus did. And you

    might still hear about other miracles that God still does for us. Remember:

    Each one is a miracle. Each one is something that only God can do. Always

    be amazed! Lets not let it be like when we see the tenth church on our tour

    in Europe. Oh just another miracle.

    SAINT OLGA SHE BROUGHT CHRISTIANITY TO RUSSIA

    If you were a princess or

    prince, what would you do?

    Maybe the first thing you might

    think about are the fancy clothes,

    the fancy dinners, the fancy trips.

    But this week we remember a saint

    who saw past these things.

    Saint Olga was the princess of Kiev

    more than 1,100 years ago. She ruled

    over what is now Russia, Ukraine,

    and more. Now, the people there are almost all Orthodox

    Christians. But then, things were different. Most people

    were pagan they did not worship our one, true God.

    Once, St. Olga visited the great city of Constantinople. She learned about

    the Christian Church and wanted to be baptized. Then, she went back to

    Kiev (where she lived), and took care of her grandsons. Many years later,

    one of her grandsons, Vladimir, became emperor. He remembered the

    faith of his grandmother. Then, Vladimir was baptized. Thousands of

    people were baptized with him.

    Over the years, millions and millions of people have worshipped as Or-

    thodox Christians, thanks to this princessSt. Olga!

    We celebrate the nameday of St. Olga on Friday, July 11th.
