From the Menaion - 1 March


On 1 March, we commemorate the holy martyred nun, Eudocia, a Samaritan.

It is not water from a well that the Samaritan martyr Eudocia presents to the Messiah. Rather, on the first day of March, at the point of a sword, streams of her blood, flowing from her neck, are offered.

By her holy prayers, O our God, have pity on us and save us. Amen.
