Our Holy Father Thaleleus, a Syrian hermit
(February 27)



He was at first in the monastery of St Sava the Sanctified, but then settled in a pagan graveyard, famed for the appearing of evil spirits and bogies. To conquer his terror by faith in God, Thaleleus settled in that graveyard and lived there for many years, enduring much from the fallen spirits both day and night. By his great faith and love towards God, he was endowed by Him with the gift of working won-ders, and did much good for the sick and suffering. He died in about 460.
