Equal of the Apostles Thekla

You were enlightened by the words of Paul,
O Bride of God, Thekla,
And your faith was confirmed by Peter,
O Chosen One of God.
You became the first sufferer
and martyr among women,
entering into the flames
as into a place of gladness.
when you accepted the Cross of Christ,
demonic powers were frightened away.
intercede before Christ God
that our souls may be saved.
(Troparion)

O glorious Thekla,
virginity was your splendor,
The crown of martyrdom
your adornment and the faith your trust!
You turned a burning fire into refreshing dew,
and with your prayers appeased pagan fury,
O First Woman Martyr!
(Kontakion)
