Our Holy Father Procopius the Czech.

Commemorated April 1 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Born in Hotish in Czechoslovakia, of eminent parents, he became a priest and went off into the mountains to live after the example of the Eastern hermits. Herzog Ulrich came across him by chance and helped him to found the monastery of St John the Forerunner by the river Sazava. This holy man entered into rest in 1053.
