Our Holy Fathers Paisius and Isaiah.

Commemorated July 18 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

Brothers, sons of wealthy parents, they were both monks. One devoted himself to asceticism in the desert and the other to works of mercy among men. St Pambo saw them both in Paradise. Through this, a dispute among the monks as to which is better: asceticism or works of mercy, was settled. Both the one and the other, when performed in the name of Christ, lead to Paradise.
