Martyr Parasceva of Rome

Troparion — Tone 5

Wise and praiseworthy martyr of Christ Parasceva: / By accepting courage and rejecting feminine weakness / You conquered the devil! / You put your torturer to shame by crying out: / Come, rend my body with your sword and burn it with fire, / For I go rejoicing to Christ my bridegroom! / By her prayers, O Christ God, save our souls!

Kontakion — Tone 8

Come, O faithful, and with one accord let us sing a special hymn to Parasceva! / Triumphant in her fight she shines as a brilliant star above the world; / Expelling the darkness of error, she pours down grace upon the faithful. / Therefore, let us cry out to her: Rejoice, O Victorious Martyr!
