May 20 - The Feast of Saint Lydia: A Saint To Inspire The Opening Of Hearts To God

St. Lydia Church
In The Village of Lydia In Greece
What a pleasure it would be to visit this church in Greece named after St. Lydia.  She doesn't have a lot of churches names after her, yet she was quite instrumental in letting Christianity flow into Europe!  Of course, it was God who opened her heart to Paul's words during his earliest missionary visit in Europe, but Lydia let God's influence move her and she became a believer.  And, because she was a business woman of some influence, besides being baptized herself, she had "her household" baptized as well, thus beginning the spread of Christianity into ancient Macedonia and beyond.

St. Lydia In The Bible
Acts 16:11-15, 40
