Saint Irene was chosen to become the Abbess of the Monastery. She accepted with great fear knowing her responsibility over the Souls of the Sisterhood, and she increased her Prayers and Asceticism.

“The Lord, seeing that her goal was a good one, immediately heard her request and sent to her from the heavens a light-bearing Angel who appeared to her dressed in a stunning white garment… This Angel would appear to her, conversing with her as a friend each time it was needed for her to know something secret. This gift was given to her not only for all the Nuns who were under her spiritual care, but also for the many that came to her seeking to hear her golden words.”
