Holy Virgin Martyr Paraskevi of Rome

We the Τίνες Ρωμίοι ("Certain Romans") who produce GOCTV, often are asked by our viewers to do programs on a topic/s that are/is of particular interest to that/those viewer/s. One particular viewer is Nicholas Papadopoulos, esq., a young attorney from Chicago. He suggested we do a program on a Holy Virgin that was among his favorite saints.
