Church Feast 1 August



MAKRIDA, sister of St. Basil the Great and Gregory of Nyssa, was born in Cappadocia at the beginning of the 4th century. In addition to Macrid, there were nine other children in the family. Her mother, Saint Emilia, taught her to read in the Holy Books, attended church services with her, and performed home prayers. Makrida was also taught proper housekeeping and various handicrafts. She was engaged to a pious young man, but the bridegroom soon passed away; after that, Macrida refused to anyone who wanted to marry her, choosing a virgin life and not wanting to change the memory of the deceased. She carefully followed the upbringing and education of younger brothers and sisters and after the death of her father became the main support for the family. When the children grew up and left their home, Macrida convinced the mother to leave the world together and retire to the monastery. They took the veil.
