St. Anastasia of Rome

An icon of St. Anastasia of Rome.

The Icon

Feast Day - October 29th.

In the icon the saint is shown in holding a cross, a sign of martyrdom. Orphaned as a child, she was raised by nuns and grew into a beautiful and pious woman. Brought before the emperor, she was urged to deny her belief in Christ but remained steadfast in her Christian faith. For this, she received martyrdom through torture and beheading. She was buried by the nuns from the monastery, with the help of two Christians.

Troparion in tone 4

Your holy martyr Anastasia, O Lord, through her sufferings
Has received her incorruptible crown from you, our God;
For, having your strength, she laid low her adversaries
And shattered the powerless boldness of demons.
Through her intercessions, save our souls!

Kontakion in tone 3

Purified by the waters of virginity, O righteous one,
You were wedded by the blood of martyrdom, O Anastasia.
You grant healing and salvation to those who are in need,
And who call on you from their hearts,
For Christ gives you strength, pouring out on you everflowing grace!
