Maria Zabova - A Story of Faith

Maria Zabova has not missed a single Sunday Service at Alexander Nevski Cathedral, in the Bulgarian capital Sofia, for 30 years.

She is over 80 and single-handedly sounds the tonne-weight bells to call people to prayer. Maria wasn't always as happy in her faith though. In the Communist years she was persecuted for coming to church and found ingenious ways to stay true to her beliefs.
