Handmade Byzantine Icon of Saint Sabbas, the Sanctified.
Saint Sabbas came from Cappadocia and at a young age decided to follow a monastic life.
At the age of eighteen he went to Jerusalem and joined a convent. There, he stood out for his virtues and his devotion to the Word of God, and as a result of which Euthymius the Great proclaimed him a children's elder.
He passed away peacefully in 584 AD at an advanced age. When his tomb was opened years later, his incorruptible remains were revealed.
