St. Theocleta the Wonderworker of Asia Minor (840)

Commemorated on August 21

Born in Asia Minor, and having entered into marriage, she persuaded her husband to live with her as with a sister, and remaining a virgin, she devoted herself ascetically to feats of piety. She occupied herself in reading soul-pleasing books and with all her strength devoted her labor to help her neighbors. She knowing beforehand the day of her death died in the IX century. Her relics have become glorified for many miracles.
