Our Holy Father Dorotheus.

Commemorated September 16 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

An Egyptian hermit of the fourth century, he lived in asceticism for sixty years in a cell in the Thebaid.

He was distinguished by a rare love of labour and by wonderworking power.

By day he built cells for the new monks and by night plaited mats, never interrupting his prayer and psalmody.
