The Apostles
Hagiography of the Saint Apostle Kyrene

Kyrene was 3 years younger than Christos. A teacher of Hellenic history, she had a great knowledge of Aristotle's philosophy, lived to teach, and was naturally attracted to Christos' teaching. At the same time, advocating love and absolute tolerance, she had converted an old militiaman, leading him to lay down his arms, preferring the search for a constructive preaching with the Romans to unsuccessful attempts to force them to leave by force.
Christos’ vision of love made her the first woman to accept being one of his apostles of universal love, always in search of selfless love. She was already preaching by his side, and it is from her that the quotation “Love one another“ comes from; “as Christos loves us, too. Love each other; To this all will know that you are his disciples, if you have love for one another”

After the crucifixion, she continued to preach Love and Compassion, Christos' death having strengthened her belief that it was better to accept her destiny, whatever it may be, rather than use violence to try to bend it. Yes, she was thinking about what the Messiah Christos once said to her: “I accept my destiny to suffer for you, and my bishops will not have the same mission. You must live by the word, but others will have the destiny to protect you with iron, because humanity still has too much shadow in itself. Live and preach, but accept that some have the burden of using iron to defend the Church if it is attacked by it. Never, however, should they use iron for their own purposes, or those of their leaders.”

One day, almost ten years after Christos' death, as she was walking in Jerusalem to join her students, she saw two Roman soldiers beating a vagabond and she interposed with these words:

"But by the Love of Creation, stop this violence, why do you want to be violent and so brutal to the poor?"

The two men turned to look at her to tell her to move along, if she did not want to be shown how much they could love him... They left, laughing, dragging the unfortunate man behind them. Kyrene followed them, preaching love and tolerance, until one of the two soldiers turned around and struck her with his shield. Only the arrival of a group of her pupils made the two soldiers flee, dragging with them their victim Helping her up, her students told her:

"But, most holy and noble mistress, how can we, who refuse violence oppose to that of others?"

She taught them about this subject. Since the destruction of the great city of Oanylone, human communities had originally organized around moral rules considering their own survival. Moral rules exist because human being are free to make their own choices. And part of them still listens to the message of the violent. Because the human must tend towards god, but is still filled with shadow. As he strives for perfection he naturally knows, as a child of god, to be reasonable and able to choose reason, but he must still be guided. We must strive towards a community following universal laws, and the longest route is made of words and love. It is to this end that the human has received the verb and the writing. But sometimes humanity will take the shortcut of using iron, because it was also given to man by god. And yet, iron was given to man as the nameless creature was left among us, for the purpose of tempting us and for us to forget it was a weapon. One day I tell you, we will live in a world of love where we will only be interested in what the Most High sees in us, and no longer what our neighbor sees, and only on this day weapons will no longer be out of their scabbards. But for this day to come, we must separate the iron and the verb, this without neglecting the use of iron by those who choose to defend the priests of the Most High. The messiah came to define rules, because as Aristotle already said “we must prefer to be content with the acceptable rather than to directly demand the impossible.” Violence is therefore acceptable against violence if the goal is justice or the defense of the true faith. We must be able to oppose the word to the word, but also the iron to the iron.

Let's not be like the tribe of Carebears, who did not understand that sometimes things do not happen as they should, that we should expect god to protect us, because he gave us the ability to do so. We can't thank him for free will and blindly put it to events. Remember, just after the destruction of Oanylone, that this tribe that followed the exodus, asked god for an oasis for their own, in the middle of the desert. A place blessed by him, where they would have everything available and could live in beauty contests, pagan and permanent festivals, and where no one would impose anything other than love and be loved to them. They asked so much that Mhour answered them: « Help yourself and heaven will help you ». After having deliberated on this answer, they did not understand it and thought that it would be enough to leave and that once again Oane would appear to them, giving them what they asked for. So they left without anything, so that they didn’t last long, in the direction of the rising sun, to finally disappear forever and become a mere legend. Our creator gave us the means to protect us from the rain. He gave us the science of construction, but does the lumberjack who fells trees criticize him? The creator did not allow us to come to the world clothed, but made it possible to the weavers, who need to kill animals just like butchers...

Everyone has his place, the soldier has his place in the same way to help the building of the church, but he has a great responsibility. Just like the lumberjack must not cut a tree if nobody needs it, the soldier must not shed blood unnecessarily. Just like the woodcutter has no hate against the tree, the soldier must not hate his enemy, and he must act only if the cause is right and approved by god. If he fights without hatred, to serve the purposes of the Creator, and respects the days of prayer, it will be forgiven.

The choice of reason, when making a decision, is what leads to the Most High, for reason brings understanding, understanding leads to selfless friendship, friendship leads to perfect Love, and Love raises us towards god. Violence inevitably leads to exclusion and resentment, thus moving us away from the Most High. Thus, the progressive elimination of violence is, at the same time, the secret of morals and the very criterion of any political action that is meant to be moral.

After many of her preachers disappeared, having been taken away by soldiers of the empire, she was the Aristotelian authority in Jerusalem. Although not violent, she resolved to create a guard to protect the preachers of Jerusalem, and appointed one of her disciples Vice-dominus (origin of the title of vidame) to direct it.
Far from helping her priests, she worried about the prefect who had arrested all those who carried the Aristotelian cross. He had those carrying a weapon killed for treason against the Empire of Rome and condemned to the crucifixion those who wore the robe of a priest. The sympathizers had the choice to deny Christos and his followers or to die at the side of Kyrene.
All her disciples chose to follow her to until the end, and 33 crosses were counted on the hill on the day of execution. It is said that just before she died, she cried out a quote from Christos: “But you will love one another in the name of god!"

There is no text of Kyrene, the youngest of the apostles, for all her possessions were confiscated by the prefect of Jerusalem. There is only an account of her course on violence, and a copy of her hand in the history of the tribe of Carebears which she had offered to one of her students who had gone to Gaul before the massacre.

She died as a martyr exactly 12 years after Christos.
Those of her faithful who were not in Jerusalem, and who escaped execution, came to remove the bodies to offer them a decent funeral. The Kyrene Shroud was later exhumed; it was found intact despite the time elapsed.

Her symbol is a goose feather on a shield, and her relic, her shroud
