St. Irene the Great-Martyr

Christ is risen! Joyous feast! St. Irene was a renowned missionary and virgin-martyr of the 4th century Church who converted many to Orthodox Christianity and endured great sufferings for her Lord before being translated to heaven near Ephesus in Asia Minor. More on her life can be found here. May her blessing and prayer be with us all!
