St Myron the Wonderworker, Bishop of Crete.

Commemorated August 8 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He was at first married, and was a Tabourer on the land, sharing the fruits of his farm joyfully and abundantly with the poor. He once caught some unknown thieves on his threshing-floor, stealing corn. Not saying who he was, St Myron helped the thieves to fill their sacks, lift them onto their backs and escape. For his outstanding virtues, he was ordained priest and later consecrated bishop. He was a great wonderworker and did many good and mighty works in the name of the Lord Jesus. He entered into rest in about 350, at the great age of a hundred.
