Our venerable father among the [[saints]] '''Peter the Athonite''' was born of noble parents in Constantinople in the a ninth century. Sent forth with the Roman army against the Saracens, he was taken captive and shut up in the prison of Samarra in Syria; this is no doubt the same prison in which the Forty-Two Martyrs of Amorion were kept ([[March 6]]). Released from prison through the prayers of Saint [[Nicholas of Myra]] and Saint [[Symeon the God-receiver]], he fled to Rome, where he became a [[monk]], and later came to the peninsula of who lived on [[Mount Athos|Athos]], where he lived in a cave as a solitary, suffering many temptations from the evil one, but also enjoying the manifest help of the most holy [[Theotokos]]. He reposed in peace and is commemorated [[June 12]].
