Our Holy Father Hellius.

Commemorated July 14 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

An Egyptian monk of the fourth century, he devoted himself from early youth to monastic asceticism in the desert. He made monks and lay-folk marvel by his life and great miracles, and, although he fled from human praise, he could not hide himself. He had fierce struggles with diabolical delusion, most especially during a long fast. The devil set before him sometimes honey and sometimes delicious apples, but he would not be enticed. He had insight into the hearts o men, revealing their passions and thoughts, and this not to make a parade of his inner knowledge but to set them on the right path.
