A MODEL OF MEEKNESS

Today we feature a saint whose life teaches us that greatness often lies merely in doing simple things to the very best of our abilities. St. Euthymius is given distinction of being referred to as “the Great,” even though he spent most of his life in obscurity.

 

ST. EUTHYMIUS THE GREAT was born in Miletene of Armenia in 377 A.D. Blessed with a firm desire to totally dedicate his life to serving the Lord, he was ordained to the holy priesthood at the tender age of 19. Devoted to the monastic way of life, Euthymius soon withdrew into the wilderness between Jerusalem and Jericho. He lived in a cave, filling his life with prayer and meditation. His reputation for piety and spirituality spread rapidly, and pilgrims from far and near sought him out, eager to receive his wise counsel. He became well-known for his profound spiritual sayings, always emphasizing the importance of love and humility in one’s life. A follower of strict ascetic practices, Euthymius would leave his cave each Lent and retire to the desert, where he would remain in solitude until Pascha.

 

St. Euthymius the Great was blessed by the Lord with longevity f years. He died in 473 A.D. at the age of 97. His final request was that the monastery which had been founded near his cave would always keep its gates open to visitors, offering warmth and hospitality to all who entered.
