Martyrs Menodora, Metrodora, and Nymphodora, at Nicomedia

Commemorated on September 10

Troparion — Tone 4

O Holy Martyrs, / you wisely exchanged horrible torture and bitter death for Eternal Life! / Three virgins, you confessed the unoriginate Trinity at an evil council, / and for this reason were slain by the sword, / following the way of the Lamb who was slain! / Now ever pray for us / Who commemorate your holy memory!

Troparion — Tone 1

Let all who rejoice at their triumph honor these three virgin martyrs, / who are united to God as sisters and who pour forth fair streams of grace: / Menodora, Metrodora, and Nymphodora, / who were in all things courageous; / they ever pray to the Trinity for us.

Kontakion — Tone 4

Invincible in your struggles for the Holy Trinity, / and through your love for each other as sisters, / you defeated the foe of your spiritual life, / and with the five virgins, entered victoriously into the Heavenly Mansions / where you ever rejoice with the angels in the presence of the King of All!
