Our righteous mother among the saints Juliana of Lazarevo or Juliana of Murom, Juliana Lazarevskaya, Juliana the Merciful was a pious Russian woman who married and had children, living a life of asceticism without being a monastic. The Church commemorates St. Juliana on January 2. She is considered a patron saint of the kitchen and the home, and is remembered in particular for tirelessly serving the poor.
By your righteous deeds you revealed to the world,
An image of the perfect servant of the Lord.
By your fasting, vigil and prayers,
You were inspired in your evangelical life,
Feeding the hungry and caring for the poor,
Nursing the sick and strengthening the weak.
Now you stand at the right hand of the Master, Christ,
O holy Juliana, interceding for our souls.
PRAYER OF THE ANTIOCHIAN WOMEN
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
O Christ our God, we are all pledged to serve Thee with our whole being.
Help us to continue to work for Thee through our Church without seeking praise, without seeking personal gain, without judging others, without a feeling that we have worked hard enough and now must allow ourselves rest. Give us strength to do what is right and help us to go on striving and to remember that activities are not the main thing in life.
The most important thing is to have our hearts directed and attuned to Thee. Amen.
