St. Markella of Chios is commemorated July 22.

Submitting to the laws of the Lord’s divine teachings, you strove to keep them blamelessly, O Martyr Markella. And fearing the violence of your father, you fled from him and dwelt in the mountains. Pursuing you he found you and slew you, O undefiled bride of Christ.

Glory to Him who strengthened you.

Glory to Him who crowned you.

Glory to Him who works healings for all through you.
