Saint Romanos the Melodist

Saint Romanos wanted to sing to God, but his voice was not

very good. The Theotokos came to him and told him to eat a

scroll that she was holding. He ate the scroll, and went into

the church for the all-night Christmas service. He began to

sing a beautiful hymn that he wrote about Christmas. All the

others were amazed at his beautiful singing. He wrote many

other hymns for our Church.
