Book of Saints – Lazarus


Lazarus (Saint) (February 23) (9th century) A monk of Constantinople, renowned as a painter, who in the time of Theophilus (A.D. 829-842), one of the Iconoclast Emperors, busied himself in restoring the Sacred Pictures defaced by the heretics. He was seized and put to the torture. But his right hand, burned off, was miraculously restored to his arm, and, escaping with his life, he persevered to the end in his brave struggle for the Faith, passing away in great repute of zeal and ascetic holiness.
