Lives of Saints - The Martyr Alexandra 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 Martyr Alexandra
   

St. Alexandra, wife of the emperor Diocletian, was secretly a Christian. Observing the staunch faith of St. George during his sufferings, she decided to witness her faith in Jesus Christ openly. She went to the area where St. George was being tortured, fell on her knees at the feet of the great martyr and professed herself a Christian before all.

The enraged Diocletian, condemned the queen to death. Alexandra accepted this condemnation and meekly went to the place of execution while turning her gaze heavenward in prayer. On the way, being tired, she asked the soldiers to be allowed to rest for a while. Leaning against the wall of a building she quietly gave up her soul. Her peaceful end transpired on April 21, 303 A.D. She is commemorated together with the great martyr George on April 23rd by the Church calendar.
