This is advice given to a young woman who felt too ashamed to come back to faith; she had become a prostitute, and her uncle found her and came to bring her home.

“It is not new to fall; what is wrong is to lie down when you have fallen. Remember where you stood before you fell. The devil once mocked you, but now he will know that you can rise stronger than before….Do not draw back from the mercy of God.”

What is amazing about this timeless quote is that it happened fifteen hundred years ago. It is the story of St. Mary of Edessa.
