Ss. Elizabeth & Barbara the New-Martyrs
From Vespers of the Feast
(Tone 6) A dark mine, depleted of its ore is today revealed to be brilliant with the pure gold of faith and good works! A shaft sunk deep into the earth is shown to be a ladder reaching to the heaven, whereon Elizabeth and her companions ascend from the depths to the heights of paradise!
O holy Elizabeth and nun Barbara, together with Princes Sergius, John, Igor, Constantine & Vladimir, your earthly diadems were exchanged for the incorruptible crowns of martyrdom which were given to you from the hands of the Savior!
