Holy Martyrs Saint Sophia and her Daughters Faith, Hope and Love

As a city of Divine Wisdom, Sofia has its patron saints in the face of Sophia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Love. They lived in the second half of the first century and the first decades of the second century in Rome. The mother – Sophia, led a prudent Christian life, filled with peace, purity, humility, and obedience to God's will and her three daughters were named after the main Christian virtues – Faith, Hope and Love.

In the years of persecution of Christians in the Roman Empire they did not renounce their faith and defended it, and thus after being tortured they were killed. Sophia spent three days at the tomb of her daughters. She prayed earnestly to the Lord and surrendered her soul to the Savior. Christians buried the holy mother with her daughters. This happened in 126 AD.

Since 777, the relics of the holy martyrs Sophia, Faith, Hope, and Love have been in Alsace, France. Present-day Sofia worships their feats and preserves their values.

111 years since the proclamation of the Independence of Bulgaria

September 22 is a public holiday in Bulgaria – on this date in 1908, after 500 years of Ottoman Domination, Bulgaria – one of the oldest countries in Europe, once again appeared on the world map. On September 22, 1908 with a manifesto by the Bulgarian Knyaz Ferdinand the Independence of Bulgaria was proclaimed in Veliko Tarnovo. In this way, the last vassal ties with the Ottoman Empire were severed. The Principality of Bulgaria became an independent country ruled by Tsar Ferdinand. The High Porte followed by the Great Powers accepted officially the Bulgarian independence.

In Sofia this day is celebrated on September 22 at 11 am in front of the Independence monument (near the National Art Gallery).
