Saint’s Biography

Saint Paul the Hermit was born around 230 in a rich Christian family in Egypt. He was very well-educated and was fluent in Greek and Egyptian. Paul’s parents died when he was 15.

Paul was 22 years old when the persecutions of Decius began, and he had to flee into the desert, and planned to return when the persecution was over. He stayed in his cave in the Tibetan desert for ninety years and served God with fasting and prayer without ever being discovered. He dressed in a costume of palm leaves, and until he was 43 years old. Paul lived only on the fruits of the palms. But from then on, a tame raven started bringing him half a loaf of bread each morning. He was buried by Saint Anthony the Abbot and his biography was written by Saint Jerome. He died on January 5 342 of natural causes.
