Αγία Ία (St Ia), Ιεραπόστολος & Παρθενομάρτυς

στο St. Ives της Κορνουάλης της Αγγλίας,

από Ιρλανδία (+450)

3 Φεβρουαρίου

Η Αγία Ία (St Ia) ήταν μία Ιρλανδή πριγκίπισσα, αδερφή του Αγίου Erc. Λέγεται πως γνώρισε την Αληθινή Πίστη σε νεαρή ηλικία από τον Άγιο Πατρίκιο τον Φωτιστή της Ιρλανδίας. Έπειτα αποφάσισε να συντροφεύσει τον Άγιο Fingar και τον Piala οι οποίοι θα έπλεαν για την Cerniw (Κορνουάλη).

Παρόλα αυτά άφησαν την Ιρλανδία χωρίς αυτήν και η Αγία Ια πλησίασε την ακτή μόνο για να τους δει να εξαφανίζονται στον ορίζοντα.

Κλαίγοντας πικρά, κάθισε κάτω στην άμμο για να προσευχηθεί. Ένα μικρό φύλλο μέσα στο νερό τράβηξε την προσοχή της και το άγγιξε με την βέργα της με σκοπό να το κάνει να βουλιάξει. Αντί αυτού όμως, το φύλλο άρχισε να μεγαλώνει συνεχώς. Σύντομα ήταν τόσο πλατύ και ανθεκτικό, που η Ια μπόρεσε να ανέβει επάνω του και να το χρησιμοποιήσει σαν βάρκα.

Έτσι έπλευσε μέσα στην Ιρλανδική θάλασσα και έφτασε στο Penwith της Cerniw πριν ακόμη και από αυτούς που την είχαν αφήσει στην ακτή.

Η Αγία Ία έγινε μαθήτρια του Αγίου Berwyn και σύντομα την ακολούθησε ο Άγιος Elwyn και 777 σύντροφοι.

Ίδρυσε την εκκλησία του Pen Dinas. Το Ιερό Πηγάδι της το Venton Eia (ή Ffynnon Ia) ήταν κοντά στο Porthmeor.

Εγκατέστησε ένα εκκλησάκι στο Troon στην ενορία Camborne, δίπλα σε άλλο Ιερό Πηγάδι, το Fenton Ear (ή Ffynnon Ia). Ίσως να ταξίδεψε στη Βρετάνη, όπου η περιοχή Plouyé δίπλα στο Carhaix έχει το όνομα της.

Η παρουσία της Ια στο Penwith δεν ήταν αρεστή σε όλους και καταδιώχθηκε από τον τοπικό ηγεμόνα, Βασιλιά Tewdar. Τελικά την βρήκε τόσο ενοχλητική που κατέληξε στο να την δολοφονήσει. Θάφτηκε στο Porth Ia (St. Ives) και εορτάζεται στις 3 Φεβρουαρίου.

Saint Patrick the Enlightener of Ireland  (+461)

Commemorated by the Eastern Orthodox Church on March 17

SIMPLY ORTHODOX

Saint Patrick, the Enlightener of Ireland was born around 385, the son of Calpurnius, a Roman decurion (an official responsible for collecting taxes). He lived in the village of Bannavem Taberniae, which may have been located at the mouth of the Severn River in Wales. The district was raided by pirates when Patrick was sixteen, and he was one of those taken captive. He was brought to Ireland and sold as a slave, and was put to work as a herder of swine on a mountain identified with Slemish in Co. Antrim. During his peri
od of slavery, Patrick acquired a proficiency in the Irish language which was very useful to him in his later mission.

He prayed during his solitude on the mountain, and lived this way for six years. He had two visions. The first told him he would return to his home. The second told him his ship was ready. Setting off on foot, Patrick walked two hundred miles to the coast. There he succeeded in boarding a ship, and returned to his parents in Britain.

Some time later, he went to Gaul and studied for the priesthood at Auxerre under St Germanus (July 31). Eventually, he was consecrated as a bishop, and was entrusted with the mission to Ireland, succeeding St Palladius (July 7). St Palladius did not achieve much success in Ireland. After about a year he went to Scotland, where he died in 432.

Patrick had a dream in which an angel came to him bearing many letters. Selecting one inscribed “The Voice of the Irish,” he heard the Irish entreating him to come back to them.

Although St Patrick achieved remarkable results in spreading the Gospel, he was not the first or only missionary in Ireland. He arrived around 432 (though this date is disputed), about a year after St Palladius began his mission to Ireland. There were also other missionaries who were active on the southeast coast, but it was St Patrick who had the greatest influence and success in preaching the Gospel of Christ. Therefore, he is known as “The Enlightener of Ireland.”

His autobiographical Confession tells of the many trials and disappointments he endured. Patrick had once confided to a friend that he was troubled by a certain sin he had committed before he was fifteen years old. The friend assured him of God’s mercy, and even supported Patrick’s nomination as bishop. Later, he turned against him and revealed what Patrick had told him in an attempt to prevent his consecration. Many years later, Patrick still grieved for his dear friend who had publicly shamed him.

St Patrick founded many churches and monasteries across Ireland, but the conversion of the Irish people was no easy task. There was much hostility, and he was assaulted several times. He faced danger, and insults, and he was reproached for being a foreigner and a former slave. There was also a very real possibility that the pagans would try to kill him. Despite many obstacles, he remained faithful to his calling, and he baptized many people into Christ.

The saint’s Epistle to Coroticus is also an authentic work. In it he denounces the attack of Coroticus’ men on one of his congregations. The Breastplate (Lorica) is also attributed to St Patrick. In his writings, we can see St Patrick’s awareness that he had been called by God, as well as his determination and modesty in undertaking his missionary work. He refers to himself as “a sinner,” “the most ignorant and of least account,” and as someone who was “despised by many.” He ascribes his success to God, rather than to his own talents: “I owe it to God’s grace that through me so many people should be born again to Him.”

By the time he established his episcopal See in Armargh in 444, St Patrick had other bishops to assist him, many native priests and deacons, and he encouraged the growth of monasticism.

St Patrick is often depicted holding a shamrock, or with snakes fleeing from him. He used the shamrock to illustrate the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Its three leaves growing out of a single stem helped him to explain the concept of one God in three Persons. Many people now regard the story of St Patrick driving all the snakes out of Ireland as having no historical basis.

St Patrick died on March 17, 461. There are various accounts of his last days, but they are mostly legendary. Muirchu says that no one knows the place where St Patrick is buried. St Columba of Iona (June 9) says that the Holy Spirit revealed to him that Patrick was buried at Saul, the site of his first church. A granite slab was placed at his traditional grave site in Downpatrick in 1899.

Saint Patrick, please pray for us the sinners!

Naomh Ciarán Saighre na hÉireann (+530)

Márta 5

Naomh Ciarán Saighre (nó Ciarán Saighir, Ciarán mac Luaigne; Laidin: Kyaranus nó Ciaranus Maior). Bhí Ciarán Saighre mar Easpag Éireannach sa 6ú haois.

Is ceann de na Dhá Aspal Déag na hÉireann é. Airítear é mar dhuine de na naoimh a bhí in Éirinn sula dtáinig Naomh Pádraig.

Glaoitear Ciarán Saighre chun difir a dhéanamh idir é féin agus Naomh Ciarán Óg as Cluain Mhic Nóis.

Is i nOileán Chléire i gContae Chorcaí a rugadh Naomh Ciarán Saighre.

Chuaigh Ciarán Saighre go dtí an Mhór-Roinn, áit ar baisteadh é agus inar oirníodh é ina shagart agus ina easpag. D’fhill sé ar Osraí, ceantar dúchais a athar, agus chaith sé seal ina dhíthreabhach ach bhailigh deisceabail timpeall air agus i gceann tamaill bhí mórchlú ar an mainistir sin a bhí i Saighir.

Saint Ia,

Missionary & Virgin Martyr in Cornwall, England,

from Ireland (+450)

February 3

Saint Ia of Cornwall (also known as Eia, Hia or Hya) was an evangelist and martyr of the 5th century in Cornwall. She was an Irish princess, the sister of Saint Erc of Slane and a student of Saint Baricus.

St Ia went to the seashore to depart for Cornwall from her native Ireland along with other saints. Finding that they had gone without her, fearing that she was too young for such a hazardous journey, she was grief-stricken and began to pray. As she prayed, she noticed a small leaf floating on the water and touched it with a rod to see if it would sink. As she watched, it grew bigger and bigger. Trusting God, she embarked upon the leaf and was carried across the Irish Sea. She reached Cornwall before the others, where she joined Saint Gwinear and Felec of Cornwall. They had up to 777 companions.

She founded an oratory in a clearing in a wood on the site of the existing Parish Church that is dedicated to her. Ia was martyred under “King Teudar” (i.e., Tewdwr Mawr of Penwith) on the River Hayle and buried at what is now St Ives, where St Ia’s Church—of which she is now the patron saint—was erected over her grave. The town built up around it. Her feast day is February 3.

Saint Carannog / Carantock

Irish Missionary of Wales & Cornwall, England (+6th century

May 16

Saint Carantoc was the son of Ceredig, King of Cardigan, but he chose the life of a hermit and lived in a cave above the harbour of the place now called after him, Llangranog, where there is also a holy well, which he probably used. When the people tried to force him to succeed his father, he fled, and founded a religious settlement in Somerset at Carhampton. According to legend, his portable altar was lost as he crossed the Severn Sea and was washed up at the mouth of the little brook Willet near Carhampton. Carantoc went to King Arthur, the leader of the British resistance to the Saxon invaders, to ask his help to recover his altar, and the King asked him in return to tame a dragon that was troubling the neighbourhood.

After Carantoc had prayed to the Lord, the dragon came running to the man of God and humbly bent his head to allow him to put his stole around his neck and to lead him like a lamb, lifting neither wing nor claw against him. After a time the dragon was released and departed having been instructed not to molest the human inhabitants of the land again. This is said to have taken place at Dunster.

Besides Carhampton, Carantoc founded a religious settlement at Crantock across the river Gannel from Newquay, and then, according to Capgrave, was led by his guardian angel to journey to Ireland to assist St.Patrick in the conversion of that island. In Ireland he cured one of his disciples, Tenenan, of his leprosy by giving him a hot bath. His ministry did not end in Ireland for he is honoured in Brittany as the founder saint of Carantec and the neighbouring parish of Tegarantec, which was probably originally Tref Carantoc.

St.Carantoc died in the middle of the sixth century, and Bath Abbey, which held the living of Carhampton, kept his festival on May 16th. The Welsh, Cornish, Irish and Breton calendars commemorate him at this time.
