Saint Porphyrios

Claim to fame: He was a monk that lived on Mount Athos who had the gift of clear sight.

Quote: “…Love Christ and put nothing before His Love. He is joy, He is life, He is light. Christ is Everything. He is the ultimate desire, He is everything. Everything beautiful is in Christ.” Elder Porphyrios

Fun fact: He ran away from home to become a monk and snuck into Mount Athos under the protection of an older monk as he was too young at the time to enter.
