Grant me, O Lord, this supplication…

Saint Barbara is often depicted in Icons holding the Holy Chalice. This is because of Christ’s promise to her, that whoever Prays to Saint Barbara and remembers her would not face a sudden unexpected death, and would be Blessed to receive the Holy Mysteries of Christ before they depart this life.

Saint Barbara and Saint Paisios the Athonite.

“…Grant me, O Lord, this supplication, and grant Your servant Grace, that those who remember me in Your Holy Name and celebrate the Memory of the days of my Martyrdom, O Lord, may be forgiven, and not have their sins remembered in the day of judgment…”
