St. Simeon The Stylite
Feast Day - September 1st.
Saint Simeon the Stylite is depicted in the Icon on an eight foot high piller, where he settled as his little monastic cell, a previously unknown mode of asceticism. He is devoting himself to intense prayer and fasting. His hands are shown open and facing out. This is a sign of his gift of healing.
