The Life of Saint Matrona: Blind from birth, she bore her infirmity with humility and patience, and God made her a vessel of Grace…



Akathist Hymn

Apolytikion: Chosen by the Holy Spirit from thy swaddling clothes O Blessed Elderess Matrona, thou didst receive bodily weakness and blindness from God for spiritual cleansing, thou wast enriched with the gift of foresight and Wonderworking and hast been adorned with an Incorruptible Crown from the Lord. Wherefore, we offer thee crowns of praise, in gratitude crying out: Rejoice O Righteous Mother Matrona, fervent intercessor before God for us!
