Today (new calendar) is my Patron Saint's Day...



St. Irene of Chrysovalantou


She came just 10 days before my chrismation;


she was in my church bulletin;


my Godmother to be was asking me pretty regularly,


who I had chosen;


then St. Irene came, I read her story and that was that.


(My name's Saint is St. Elizabeth the Mother of the Forerunner


but that did not come till later).

The church I go to in Ottawa is on the old calendar but


the church I was chrismated in is on the new calendar


so I still think of today as The Day of St. Irene :)

May St. Irene of Chrysovalantou pray to God for us!
