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).
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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!
