Lives of Saints - The Martyr Alexandra Christianity - Books
I tell you, my friends, don't be afraid of those who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.                But I will warn you whom you should fear. Fear him, who after he has killed, has power to cast into Gehenna. Yes, I tell you, fear him.                Aren't five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God.                But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don't be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.                I tell you, everyone who confesses me before men, him will the Son of Man also confess before the angels of God;                but he who denies me in the presence of men will be denied in the presence of the angels of God.

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.
