The Life of Saint Anthousa: She devoted her life to her son… In his early years she taught him to love the Holy Scripture and encouraged him to study and learn it…


A Prayer

Prosomoia: How shall we now hymn Anthousa? As the spouse of Sekoundos, the Christian leader, the mother of John Chrysostom the wise. As a pillar of wisdom and chastity, and an example of motherly purity, fragrant flower of love, and unfading crown of glory, intercede, that our Souls be saved.
