Our Holy Mother Theodora of Salonica.

Commemorated August 29 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

A wealthy and devout woman, she lived on the island of Aegina, but, when the Arabs over-Tan the island, she moved to Salonica. There, she gave her only daughter to a monastery, where she received the monastic name Theopista. Her husband Theodorinus died very soon, and then Theodora became a nun. She was a great ascetic. She often heard angelic singing, and would say to her sisters: 'Don't you hear how wonderfully the angels are singing in heavenly light?' She entered into rest in 879, and a healing myrrh flowed from her body, which gave healing to many.
