three youths in the furnace



An image made with hands you would not worship, O thrice blessed three; but protected by the ineffable Essence you were glorified in your ordeal by fire. From the midst of the devouring flames you called upon God, crying: Hasten, O compassionate One, in Thy mercy come to our aid, for if Thou willest Thou canst.

I love the fact that these three youths get their own Kontakion. I love this story. It gives me great hope when I feel that I am alone in the furnace....I also love this icon.
