Venerable Zebinas, Ascetic of the Syrian Deserts

Commemorated on February 23

St Zebinas lived in Syria during the fifth century. He lived an ascetical life on the same mountain as St Moses. He never sat down during his Rule of prayer, but sometimes he leaned on his staff. The neighboring inhabitants venerated St Zebinas, and they received great help in their sorrows and needs through his prayers.

He reached a great old age, then departed to the Lord.
