St.Irene Chrysovalantou and the Three Apples

St.Irene Chrysovalantou and the Three Apples


Our venerable mother Irene of Chrysovalantou was the abbess of the monastery of Chrysovalantou during the ninth century.

Originally slated to wed the Emperor Michael, she went to the monastery of Chrysovalantou, and immediately engaged herself in vigils and prayer. She then replaced the Abbess very early on, and increased her spiritual struggles, with great trust in God to guide the community properly. She developed the gifts of foresight and exorcism. Her prayer through the night continued in the courtyard of the monastery, and caused herself to levitate and the cypress trees to bend towards her.She was granted three apples from St. John the Theologian, visions of angels, and appeared in a vision to the Emperor to release an unjustly convicted man. After her death at 102 years, she continued to be a wonderworker.

Apolytikion

Not a temporal kingdom on earth didst thou obtain,
but Christ, thy most comely Bridegroom, vouchsafed thee heavenly crowns,
and thou reignest as a queen with Him eternally;
for thou didst dedicate thyself unto Him with all thy soul,
O Irene, our righteous Mother,
thou boast of Chrysovalantou, and mighty help of all the Orthodox.

Kontakion

Leaving all the world behind with its impermanent glory,
thou wast wedded unto Christ, the King immortal and holy,
bringing Him as precious dowry thy maiden beauty
and thy trophies won through abstinence over demons.
O Irene, our righteous Mother, entreat thy Bridegroom to show His mercy to us.
