by Bev. Cooke
St. Mary of Egypt's early life may have resulted from sexual mistreatment in her childhood. Who better to intercede for us than the one who spent years repenting of her own sexual sins? This Akathist is a way to confide shameful secrets with one who will beg the Lord to enfold us in His loving embrace and help us heal.
