St. Glyceria

Commemorated May 13

Troparion of St. Glyceria, Tone 3

Let us honour Christ's fair virgin who excelled in the struggle of contest. She trampled on the serpent although she was weak in the flesh. For love of Christ she despised her torments and was therefore glorified by God. Let us cry to her: Rejoice, O blessed Glyceria.

Kontakion of St. Glyceria, Tone 3

Through love for Mary the Virgin Mother of God thou didst preserve thy virginity, O Glyceria. Thou didst surrender thy heart to Christ thy God and bravely fight till death. Therefore He has crowned thee with a double crown.
