Holy Great Martyr Barbara


Today is the day we remember Holy Great Martyr Barbara.  You can read about her here:


Troparion, Tone 4

Let us praise holy Barbara who has broken the snares of the enemy. By the help of the weapon of the Cross, she has escaped as a bird and flown Godwards.

Kontakion, Tone 4

Great Martyr Barbara, thou didst follow Him Who is praised in Trinity, having abandoned the idols’ shrines. Thou didst strive in the midst of the arena, not shrinking from the tyrants’ threats. Thou didst cry out in a strong voice: I worship the Trinity, the One Divinity.

    Xenia, are you serious? Am I mistaken or do you agree with worshiping Holy Great Martyr Barbara? Or are you exposing this heresy?

    Holy Martyr Barbara, pray to God for us!

    Yes, Robert, I am an Orthodox Christian and I believe in the Communion of the Saints. Asking someone to pray for you is not the same as worshiping them as I assume you ask people to pray for you! I know you from the other blog and I know you do not agree with this doctrine. We shall not argue about this. God bless,
