Saint Takla Himanot the Ethiopian
አባታችን ቅዱስ አቡነተክለ ሃይማኖት
Our patron saint is the most famous saint in Ethiopia.. And he is the only human on earth given wings! It is good to note here that Saint Tekla Himanout is one of the very few saints that Christians celebrate their birthday.. He performs many miracles daily in the lives of His children, and we touch it everyday in His Church..
Here is His story divided into six parts.. And don't forget to watch St. Takla's Arabic flash movie, narrated by a four years old girl :) There are also translations of the story: St. Takla's Life in Arabic - St. Takla's Story in French.
Finally, we have visited Ethiopia looking for the Holy places of St. Teklehimanot.. You'll find the details of St-Takla.org's visit to Habesha, 2008.
