Venerable Euphrosyne of Alexandria

Troparion — Tone 1

As an ascetic you hid your womanhood / And your falling-asleep was an amazement, O Euphrosyne. / Though a woman, you toiled as a man, / And by your prayers you save those who honor you!

Kontakion — Tone 2

Desiring the life on high and forsaking all earthly pleasures, / You lived as a man among men, O Euphrosyne. / For the sake of Christ your Bridegroom, / You spurned earthly betrothal!
