Exceedingly beautiful, chaste maiden; illustrious in wealth, lineage By her steadfast understanding, she utterly vanquished the passionate, unbridled soul of Maximinus, the tyrant of Alexandria; by her eloquence she stopped the mouths of philosophers who disputed her. She was crowned w/the crown of martyrdom in year 305. Her holy relics were taken by Angels to Mt. Sinai

For several days, the Athonite monks had seen a fiery pillar on the sea rising up to the heavens. They came down to the shore and found the holy image, standing upon the waters. After a Molieben of thanksgiving, a pious monk of the Iveron monastery, St Gabriel (July 12), had a dream in which the Mother of God appeared to him and gave him instructions. So he walked across the water, and taking up the holy icon, he placed it in the church.
