Our Holy Father Joachim of Osogovsk.

Commemorated August 16 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

He lived the ascetic life in the second half of the eleventh century on the mountain of Osogovsk, in a cave in a place called Sarandopor. In that place another ascetic, Theodore of the Sheepfield, to whom St Joachim appeared in a dream, built a church. Many miracles have been performed throughout the centuries over the relics of St Joachim, and are to this day.
