Virgin Martyr Glyceria at Heraclea

Commemorated on May 13

Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 4

Your lamb Glyceria, calls out to You, O Jesus, in a loud voice: / “I love You, my Bridegroom, and in seeking You I endure suffering. / In baptism I was crucified so that I might reign in You, / and I died so that I might live with You. / Accept me as a pure sacrifice, / for I have offered myself in love.” / Through her prayers save our souls, since You are merciful.

Kontakion — Tone 3

Through your love for Mary, the Virgin Theotokos, / you preserved your virginity, O Glyceria. / You surrendered your heart to the Lord / and bravely fought until your death. / Therefore, Christ God has granted you a double crown.
