Lives of Saints - The Venerable Marina and Kira Christianity - Books
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

The Venerable Marina and Kira
   

Sts. Marina and Kira, kindred sisters, came from the town of Beri in Syria where they lived in the fifth century. Disdaining the eminence of their origin, they departed to the outskirts of the city and took shelter in a cave in order to live a monastic life. They lived here for forty years, residing in silence, strict fasting and perpetual prayer. In order to perform a great labor, they wore heavy fetters under their clothing. They left their self-exile only once, in order to bow to the Lord’s tomb in Jerusalem. They died peacefully around the year 450, leaving a legacy as champions of good deeds.
