Lives of Saints - Righteous Militza Christianity - Books
Don't be anxious for your life, what you will eat, nor yet for your body, what you will wear.                Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.                Consider the ravens: they don't sow, they don't reap, they have no warehouse or barn, and God feeds them. How much more valuable are you than birds!                Which of you by being anxious can add a cubit to his height?                If then you aren't able to do even the least things, why are you anxious about the rest?                Consider the lilies, how they grow. They don't toil, neither do they spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.                But if this is how God clothes the grass in the field, which today exists, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, how much more will he clothe you, O you of little faith?                Don't seek what you will eat or what you will drink; neither be anxious.                For the nations of the world seek after all of these things, but your Father knows that you need these things.                But seek God's Kingdom, and all these things will be added to you.

Righteous Militza
   

Righteous Militza, queen of Serbia, was a descendant from the ancient clan of Nemaniches. She married a faithful-to-God prince, Lazarius the Serbian, who became the ruler of Serbia in 1379. After her husband died as a martyr in 1389 and before her son Stephan came of age, she ruled Serbia with wisdom, zest and motherly caring for her people; who at the time were oppressed by the Turks. She took care of orphans and widows, restored churches that the Turks destroyed, and built monasteries. She made sultan Bayazet promise not to persecute Christians in her country. In 1393 she took the veil under the name of Eugenia and reposed peacefully in 1405. The relics of the righteous Militza gave off healing myrrh.
