Lives of Saints - Matrona, Abbess of Constantinople Christianity - Books
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you                Pray without ceasing                For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured unto you                And we know and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is love; and he that abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him                Through many tribulations we must enter into the kingdom of God                Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven                Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven                It is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God

Matrona, Abbess of Constantinople
   

Saint Matrona was from Perga in Pamphylia, and lived in the fifth century; she was wedded to a husband and bore him a daughter. After her husband's death, she entrusted her daughter to a certain woman she knew, and then passed her life in asceticism in Constantinople, living almost one hundred years.

Apolytikion in the Plagal of the Fourth Tone:
In thee the image was preserved with exactness, O Mother; for taking up thy cross, thou didst follow Christ, and by thy deeds thou didst teach us to overlook the flesh, for it passeth away, but to attend to the soul since it is immortal. Wherefore, O righteous Matrona, thy spirit rejoiceth with the Angels.

Kontakion in the Second Tone:
While dwelling 'midst men, with fasting thou didst waste thy flesh, and thou didst devote thyself unto unceasing prayers; thus, Matrona, thou didst piously serve the Master in Whose behalf thou forsookest all things, O Saint, and broughtest thy life to its end righteously.
