Our Holy Father Paphnutius
(March 27)



He was a disciple of St Antony the Great. The holiness of his life brought many sinners (for example, St Thals, Oct 8th) back to the path of repentance, for he was more like a bodiless angel than a car-nal man. He entered into rest towards the end of the fourth century.
