From the Menaion - 19 January


On 19 January, we commemorate our venerable father, the hermit Macarios the Egyptian.

Having left the world as a hermit, Macarios renounces the earth for Heaven. As a reward for so many trials and generous labors, he receives the lot of the blessed on the nineteenth.

By his holy prayers, O our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
