Grand Duchess Elizabeth

Troparion - Tone 4

Emulating the Lord's self-abasement on the earth,
You gave up royal mansions to serve the poor and disdained,
Overflowing with compassion for the suffering.
And taking up a martyr's cross,
In your meekness
You perfected the Saviour's image within yourself,
Therefore, with Barbara, entreat Him to save us all, O wise Elizabeth.

Oh most Holy, St. Elizabeth, Please pray unto God for me.

Thanks for posting. St. Elizabeth is who our second, Hannah Elizabeth, is named after and on of the reasons why we are Orthodox, after reading her life.
