Saint John the Kalybites - Hand-Painted Icon
Iconographer: Holy Monastery of St.Ioannis Kalybites
Commemorates on: January 15
Saint John, who was from Constantinople, was the son of illustrious parents Eutropius the Senator and Theodora. At twelve years of age he departed secretly from his home and went to the Monastery of the Unsleeping. Aflame with longing for his parents, he returned after six years to his fathers home in the guise of a pauper and beggar. Living in a small hut at the gates of his parents house (wherefrom he is called "hut-dweller"), he remained unknown therein for many years, and suffered mockery at the hands of those who had been his own servants. Foreknowing his death, he revealed himself to his parents, and within a few moments reposed, about the year 450.
