Martyr Eudokia of Heliopolis

Martyr Eudokia of Heliopolis

Commemorated March 1

Troparion, Tone 8

With an upright mind you bound your soul to the love of Christ. As a disciple of the Word you turned from corruption and all that passes away, for you were not moved by earthly beauty. First you mortified the passions through fasting, then you put the enemy to shame by your suffering. Therefore, Christ has granted you a two-fold crown. Glorious Eudokia, venerable passion-bearer, entreat Christ God that our souls may be saved!

Kontakion, Tone 4

You contended well in your suffering, all-praised one; even after your death you bless us, pouring out wonders on us. In faith we run to your divine temple, and as we celebrate your feast, we entreat you, venerable martyr Eudokia, that we be delivered from spiritual afflictions and may receive the grace of miracles.
