Story of her life here.
Prayer for blessing of her apples here.
Story of a miracle here.
She is my first patron saint and the one I was
When I found her story in the church bulletin,
just days before I was chrismated,
I knew she was the one I wanted to take
as my patron Saint.
While St. Elizabeth the Mother of John the Baptist is my name's Saint
my first Patron and Mother is
St. Irene of Chrysovalantou!
Her day on the new calendar is today!
May her prayers protect us all
and grant us Christ's peace!
