Book of Saints – Maro – 14 February


(Saint) Abbot (February 14) (5th century) A Syrian hermit renowned in the East for his zeal for religion and for the austerity of his life. Both Saint Chrysostom and Theodoret make reverent mention of his virtues. He died A.D. 433. It is probably from him that the Catholic Cliristians known as Maronites take their name.
