St. Matrona the Righteous Wonderworker of Moscow

You had the gift of spiritual vision
Your blindness, the getaway to the Light
Suffused with uncreated Light, your heart
Saw what human eyes could not see

Bearing the Holy seal on you
Your christening a divine revelation
Dipped into the font, a column of light
Sweet-scented steam rising up to the ceiling

You cured people of various torments,
Expelling demons and banishing them
“the epitome of the angel–warrior incarnate,
with sword of fire in hand fighting evil powers”.

A servant chosen before you were born
An angel in the flesh wast thou revealed to be
You foresaw the will of God with noetic eyes
Your bodily blindness, a gift of spiritual wisdom

St. Matrona the Righteous Wonderworker of Moscow by Sofia Kioroglou
