My friend John Graham over at Georgian Chant reminds us that February 2nd is the commemoration of St. Ekvtime the Confessor, a 20th-century Georgian saint. His story makes for compelling reading. Another short biography, here.
Thou didst make fertile the barren wilderness with the streams of thy tears; and by thy deep sighing and through thy struggles thou hast borne fruit a hundredfold. Accordingly, thou hast become a star for the universe. Therefore, O Holy Father Ekvtime, intercede with Christ God to save our souls!
