Saint Matrona had a physical illness since she was a young child, and remained blind and unable to walk for most of her life. However, with her Spiritual eyes Christ enlightened her to see things most precious, and with her Spiritual feet she walked to the ends of the Earth with her Prayers.

“Every person is born and comes to this world not for pleasure, but for the Cross.”


“Difficult times are our lot, but we Christians must choose the Cross. Christ has placed us on His sleigh, and He will take us where He will.”
