Happy St Audrey's Day !

A blessed Feast of St Etheldreda (Audrey) to all !

Kontakion Tone II:

O holy Audrey, Mother of many, for the love of God thou didst spurn the need for rest and make thy spirit most bright through fasting and prayer, defeating the passions. Thou didst make the barren fenlands into islands of prayer and through thine intercessions thou dost destroy the snares of our enemies.

Holy Mother Audrey, pray for us !

I can't be the only Yank who's wondering: How on *earth* did they get "Audrey" out of "Ethelreda"?!?! Oh, well, nice to have the Kondak for St. Audrey, whatever name she actually goes by! ;-)
