St. Hilarion of Gaza was brought up in an agnostic family. Changed over to Christianity while learning at Alexandria, Egypt as an adolescent. Considered with Saint Anthony the Great in the Egyptian desert in 306. He at that point gave away his riches and presented the eremitical life in the Gaza area of Palestine.
Bolstered himself by weaving bushels. Established a few cloisters in Palestine. Noted for his austere life; for a considerable length of time, he ate however 15 figs every day. Supernatural occurrence labourer whose acclaim pulled in undesirable groups; to get away from the general population, including his most devoted understudy Saint Hesychius, the reputation, and the abuses of Julian the Apostate, he lived on Mount Sinai, in Egypt, in Sicily, in Dalmatia, on Paphos, and Cyprus.
