Akathist Hymn


Apolytikion: Submitting to the laws of the Lord’s Divine teachings, you strove to keep them blamelessly, O Martyr Markella. And fearing the violence of your father, you fled from him and dwelt in the mountains. Pursuing you he found you and slew you, O Undefiled Bride of Christ. Glory to Him who strengthened you. Glory to Him who crowned you. Glory to Him who works healings for all through you.

The place of the Martyrdom of the courageous Virgin-Martyr Markella.
