Book of Saints – Plato – 4 October

main article for Saint PlatoArticle

(Saint) (October 4) (9th century) A Greek monk, Abbot of a monastery in Asia Minor, and afterwards of one at Constantinople. He was a man of austere and prayerful life, but his courage in reprimanding sin even in the case of the reigning Emperor has above all made his name venerable. Bravely, too, he ever upheld the rightful Patriarchs of Constantinople against usurpers intruded by the government of the time. He had to suffer imprisonment, followed by banishment. He survived, however, to the age of eighty, and died in his monastery, A.D. 813.
