Our Holy Mother, the Martyr Theodosia.

Commemorated May 29 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

She was born after her mother's prayers to the holy martyr Anastasia, who appeared to her and told her that she would give birth to a child. Her parents dedicated her to God and gave her very early to a women's monastery. At her parents' death, she received a vast estate. She ordered three icons from a goldsmith: the Saviour, the Mother of God and St Anastasia, and gave the rest away to the poor. She suffered in the time of the Emperor Leo the Isaurian, the iconoclast, and received a twofold crown: of virginity and martyrdom, in the year 730.
