St. Venerable Lazarus the Miracle Worker of Galicia (c. 1053) – he was born in Magnesia (Asia Minor). He early felt a vocation to monastic life. He went to Jerusalem to worship the holy places and there he entered the monastery of monks Sava, where he spent 10 years.
Then he returned to his homeland and began a difficult ascetic life in an uninhabited mountain in Galicia. There he built the “Ascension of Christ” temple, and around the temple he erected a pillar, on which he spent many years in prayer and all possible deprivations. Later, the Galician Monastery was founded here. Lazar lived in the middle of the 11th century.
On this day, the memory of 33 martyrs who suffered in Melitinus during the time of Emperor Diocletian is celebrated.
