Around 300 A.D. when Diocletian was persecuting the Christians, Saint Macrina the Elder fled with her husband and children to the Black Sea. There she raised her children – including the boy later known as Saint Basil the Elder.
Eventually her son married a woman later to be known as St. Emmelia. Their famous children include Saint Basil the Great, Saint Gregory of Nyssa, Saint Peter of Sebaste, and Saint Macrina the Younger.
I believe that is known as raising a faithful family.
I thank God, whom I serve, as my forefathers did, with a clear conscience, as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers… I have been reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.
2 Timothy 1:5
St. Macrina the Younger’s feast day is celebrated on January 14.
