Saint Paraskeve was born in Thrace in the eleventh century. In her youth she
went to Constaninople, and thence journeyed to the Holy Land in pursuit
of the ascetical life. After struggling for many years in the wilderness
of the Jordan, she was moved by God to return to her homeland. She
continued her monastic labours there for a few more years, and then
reposed in peace.
Kontakion in the Plagal of the Second Tone:
Let us all piously praise most honourable Paraskeve, the holy intercessor
for those in affliction. For she gave up her earthly life and received
an incorruptible life for ever. Wherefore, she hath won glory and
the grace of wonderworking by the command of God.
