Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Euthymius.
Saint Euthymius was born in Armenia in 377 AD from a good family. As his parents didn't have a child, because his mother was barren, when Euthymius was born they dedicated him to the name of the Lord and named him Euthymios (in Greek it means "joy") because of the joy his birth brought them.
In 406 AD, Saint Euthymius moved to Jerusalem to follow an ascetic life. There, his miraculous gifts became known and many monks traveled from far to meet him. In addition, many women who faced difficulties in childbearing, turned to Saint Euthymios and his prayers in order to have a child.
He died peacefully at an old age in AD 473. Parts of his relics are in the Holy Monastery of Iviron and the Holy Monastery of Great Lavra of Mount Athos, in the Holy Monastery of Kykkos in Cyprus, in the Holy Monastery of Mega Spilaio in Kalavryta and in the Lavra of Saint Alexander Nevsky of Saint Petersburg.
Be glad, O barren one, that hast not given birth; be of good cheer, thou that hast not travailed; for a man of desires hath multiplied thy children of the Spirit, having planted them in piety and reared them in continence to the perfection of the virtues. By his prayers, O Christ our God, make our life peaceful.
