Lives of Saints - Holy Martyr Leonida Christianity - Books
And if thy hand cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life maimed, rather than having thy two hands to go into hell, into the unquenchable fire.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thy foot cause thee to stumble, cut it off: it is good for thee to enter into life halt, rather than having thy two feet to be cast into hell.                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.                And if thine eye cause thee to stumble, cast it out: it is good for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell;                where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.

Holy Martyr Leonida
   

The information regarding the Holy martyr’s death of the nun Leonida and other nuns who suffered with her are very sketchy. In the year 310, for her Faith in Christ, the nun Leonida was beheaded. The nun Livia was burned and Saint Eutronia died during her tortures.

Troparion to St. Leonida Tone 3:
Like a fragrant rose of asceticism/ thou didst breathe forth the myrrh of Christ./ Wherefore He has glorified thee as a righteous martyr, O Leonida./ Intercede with Him for those who cry:/ Rejoice, noble and blessed Martyr.

Kontakion to St. Leonida Tone 3:
Thou wast adorned with the grace of virginity and the beauty of martyrdom,/ O Leonida, Bride of Christ./ Thou didst bear thy lamp and run to thy Bridegroom/ and wast crowned with incorruption./ Pray for those who faithfully praise thee.
