Saint Milius the Ascetic

Claim to fame:

Milius witnessed Christ to the sons of the pagan king. As such, he was tortured for two weeks and killed by arrows. The day after the saint’s departure, the sons of the king went hunting. God turned their arrows into their own hearts killing them.


“’I am a sinful man and I dwell here in this mount to worship the Lord Jesus Christ the Son of the Living God” – St Milius

Fun fact:

He dwelt in a cave with his two disciples in mount Khurasan.
