Charalambos was a priest who suffered inhuman tortures and martyrdom at the hands of pagan tormentors, greater than any other martyr. Despite possessing divine courage and steadfastness of faith, placing him among the Saints, he was still human; the sharpness of pain that he felt, was the same as that of an ordinary man. We venerate him as a Saint in the highest tradition of a martyr for his steadfast refusal to renounce the Lord.

Hundreds of monasteries and convents exist around Crete, with their doors always open to visitors. It is not uncommon to be greeted with a drink of fresh water and some Loukoumia. While many monasteries have become desolate and are mainly used as museums, the monastic life is still enduring. It is even common for people, as they pass by a Church or monastery, to make the sign of the Cross. It is refreshing how the inhabitants still embrace their faith and keep it as part of their culture. Not all people are like this and many have lost their way but with God's help, we hope that they will be led back.[...]
