Saint Limnaeus

Memorial

Profile

Fifth-century cave hermit near Cyrrhus (in modern Syria). Spiritual student of Saint Thalassius. Spiritual student of Saint Maro. Lived in a small stone hut on a hill top, and talked to would-be students through a small hole; they came so frequently that he built a house on the hill top for them to stay. A noted healer, he built two houses for the blind, and induced any would-be spiritual students to contribute to care for the poor and lame.
