Venerable Matrona, Abbess of Constantinople - Troparion & Kontakion

Troparion — Tone 8

The image of God was truly preserved in you, O Mother, / for you took up the Cross and followed Christ. / By so doing, you taught us to disregard the flesh, for it passes away; / but to care instead for the soul, since it is immortal. / Therefore your spirit, O holy Mother Matróna, rejoices with the angels.

Kontakion — Tone 8

You passed through the storm of life without faltering, chosen and godly Mother Matróna, / guided to the harbor of life, where you sing hymns to the Deliverer. / You ever pray that Christ may grant us grace and mercy; / you preserve the flock which you painstakingly gathered!
