The Feast of Saint Zosimas



Let us the faithful praise Zosimas the offspring of the wilderness, / The angel in the flesh and the boast of monastics. / With him, let us acclaim holy Mary of Egypt / Whose life transcended the limits of nature. / Together, let us cry to them: / Glory to him who strengthened you! / Glory to him who sanctified you! / Glory to him who through you works healing for all!

Let us all praise the righteous Zosimas, the boast of monastics, / And with him, Mary who in the desert lived the angelic life. / Let us cry to them in faith: / Deliver from harm and corrupting passions, / Those who celebrate your radiant memory!


Saint Zosimas, pray for us, and for the Christians of the Middle East.

  1. Amen! The hope of penitents indeed, especially those of us who struggle with fleshly desires.
