Our Holy Father Dionysius of Olympus, the Wonderworker
(January 24)



He lived the ascetic life on Olympus, receiving the monastic tonsure on the Holy Mountain, where he later became abbot of Philotheou. Before the end of his life, he withdrew again to the solitude of Olym-pus, where he entered into rest in the 16th century.
