Akathist prayer to Saint Christina?
« on: January 29, 2008, 08:19:49 PM »
I was hoping someone might know, or where I can find, an akathist prayer for Saint Christina?  Many thanks in advance...

I wish!  My mother is a Christina - if anyone has one, let me know!

BTW: We have St. Christina's relics here in Cleveland, at the Catholic Cathedral (St. John's).

I didn't know that! Wow!

We may have discovered this around the time of someone's wedding down there, but I thought it was very nice that I (and my brother) had our High School graduation ceremonies at that Church, so close to our mother's patroness!
