Lives of Saints - The Martyrs Alla and Larissa Christianity - Books
If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don't have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.                If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don't have love, I am nothing.                If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don't have love, it profits me nothing.                Love is patient and is kind; love doesn't envy. Love doesn't brag, is not proud,                doesn't behave itself inappropriately, doesn't seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil; 13:6 doesn't rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;                bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.                Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.

The Martyrs Alla and Larissa
   

Sts. Alla and Larissa suffered together with other martyrs during the first half of the 4th century in Gotha, where by the order of the tsar Ungerik they were burned in the church during liturgical services.

St. Gaatha, wife of the other tsar of Gotha, together with her daughter Duklida, gathered the remains of the holy martyrs and departed with them to Kizik (in Crimea). When St. Gaatha returned to Gotha, the enraged pagans stoned her. Her daughter St. Duklida gave up her soul peacefully in Kizik.
