There’s a saying that Orthodox Christianity is the “best-kept secret” in North America. But should our faith be so unknown to the people around us?

St. Romanos the Melodist tells us to imitate St. Photini, the Samartian woman, and share our faith:

You were not worthy of having what you possess and what you keep through the grace of the Giver. Do not hesitate, then, to distribute to those who ask, just as the woman of Samaria once shared. For having drawn from the well by herself, she shared with others what she received. No one asked her, and yet she gave to all ungrudgingly of her free gift.
