Saint Euboula, Mother of Saint Panteleimon

St. Euboula (Feast Day - March 30)

Verses

In heaven you are joined with your athlete child,
O mother of the athlete and beautiful child Euboula.

Saint Euboula lived during the reign of Emperor Maximian (286-305), and was from the city of Nicomedia. She was the wife of a Greek pagan named Eustorgios, while she was from a family of Christians. Saint Panteleimon was born to her, and she raised him to love God. She reposed in peace, and today her marble tomb is located in the Cave of the Magi under the Monastery of Saint Theodosios the Cenobiarch to the east of Bethlehem, along with the tombs of 35 other renowned Saints.


Apolytikion in Plagal of the First Tone
Let us fittingly praise with joyful hymns, holy Euboula, mother of our protector Panteleimon; she has given birth to our defender, the glory of martyrs and unmercenary physicians, and the swift healer of all.

Kontakion in the Third Tone
Let us all come together today and joyfully celebrate, the mother of our protector, holy Euboula. She stands before the throne of God with him, and intercedes unceasingly for us, that we may be granted forgiveness of our sins.
