( Αγία Παρασκευή - Aghia Paraskevi ) - Saint (Good) Friday - Healer of the Blind
[ Variations: Paraskeva / Pyatnitsa / Pyetka ]
St. Paraskevi was born in Rome about 140 AD of Greek Christian parents. Her father, Agathon, was rich and her mother, Politia, had many attributes, the greatest of which was her charitability. Agathon and Politia had been married for many years but they were childless. They prayed to God to bless them with a child, which they would raise in a true Christian atmosphere. Their prayers were answered with the birth of a girl and because she was born on the sixth day of the week, they named her Paraskevi, the Greek word for Friday. St. Paraskevi is considered to be a healer of the blind because of the miracle she performed in restoring the sight of Antonius Pius, who had earlier tortured her.
