The Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene are among the choirs of the most recent Saints who martyred almost immediately after the fall of Constantinople.
Saint Raphael was born in the Miletus of Ithaca and was born in 1410 AD. Before becoming a clergyman, he had moved in a high-ranking position into the Byzantine army. Saint Raphael testified in 1463 AD in a very cruel way.
Next to Saint Raphael, Saint Nicholas was submissive. He was a monk and then he ordained deacon. Saint Nicholas died tied in a tree after being tortured in 1463 AD.
Together with the Saint Raphael and Saint Nicholas appears the only twelve-year-old Irene, daughter of Vassilios, the community ruler of Thermi of Lesvos. The Saints Raphael, Nicholas and Irene celebrate 2 days after Holy Easter.
