Christ is Risen!
Today, Holy Church of Christ celebrating a Feast of
St.Martyr Theodosia. She was born from a woman, who
wasn't able to conceive, by her faith and prayers.
At the age of 8 she was entered the monastery, by
promise of her mother. After her parents passed away,
St. Theodosia give all her inheritance to the poor and
needy and continue to live in a monastery. During the
reign of iconoclast she and other nuns from that
monastery was witnessing how one solder get on a
ladder to remove an Icon of Christ from above the
gates to the monastery. They push this ladder and
solder felt (in some texts he was killed). After that
she was imprisoned and tortured. She died in prison
defending our Orthodox Faith from innovators. She is a
good example for our days full of apostasy and
indifference. Saint Theodosia, pray to God for us!
