Happy Nameday, Maya!

Today, we celebrate the feast of St. Eirene of Chrysovalantou, also known as Irene Chrysovalantou or Irene of Cappadocia.  She was a nun and abbess, a wonderworker, and a seer.  Her story is so unique because so many of the names of those she encountered are the names of Maya's siblings!  (Not to mention that St. Eirene is a patroness of those trying to conceive... Seems fitting that she's a saint of our household!)

St. Eirene, pray for us, especially for our sweet Maya Eirene!
