Her father, a former consul, was a secret Christian and was distinguished by his piety. He raised his daughter, Saint Tatiana, in piety and fear of God, teaching her the holy scriptures.
When Saint Tatiana reached adulthood, she willed to spend her life in celibacy and chastity, as a bride of Christ. She served Him daily with prayer and fasting, mortifying her flesh and enslaving her spirit. In honor of her virtuous life she was blessed to serve the Church as a deaconess. Saint Tatiana refused to deny Christ and was executed for her faith, receiving the holy crown of martyrdom.
Through the prayers of the Holy Martyr Tatiana, may Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen!
