St. Euthymius the New, of Thessalonica, Monk of Mt. Athos
Feast Day - October 15th.
St. Euthymios is shown in his monastic habit without the traditional monastic Kobuk. He was not ordained to any of the holy orders and remained a simple monk all his life. The long white beard symbolizes his wisdom. The scroll he is holding proclaims his defense of the Christian faith against the Islam.
