On this day (September 15/Tute 4) St. Macarius II, the 69th Patriach of Alexandria 1122 A.D. departed.
He was pious and ascetic since his young age, longing for the monastic life. He went to the desert of Scete and became a monk in the monastery of St. Macarius. He devoted himself to worship and spiritual struggle. He instructed himself by reading the Holy Scriptures, their interpretation and by contemplating on its meaning. He grew in virtues and was ordained a priest.
May his prayers be with us all. Amen.
