Saint Dositeus



Dositeus was a layman who served as a page to a senior army officer. During a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, a painting of Hell caused him to re-evaluate his life and led to his becoming a monk in Palestine. He devoted himself so completely to giving up a worldly life that he destroyed his health, and died soon after entering the monastery.
