Our Holy Father Evarestus.

Commemorated December 26 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Reading the works of St Ephraim the Syrian, he abandoned the diplomatic service and became a monk. He was very strict with himself and wore chains on his body, eating dry bread only once a week. He lived for seventy-five years, and went to the Lord in about 825.
