February 26 – Saint Porphyry


He was from a rich family and left everything behind at the age of 25. He traveled to Egypt and entered a monastery. Later he had the opportunity to visit the Holy Land. There he was very impressed with the suffering of the poor people, and asked a friend to go to his home in Thessalonica and sell all his processions. When his friend returned with the money, Porphyry gave it all to the poor.

He was named bishop and worked tirelessly for evangelization and strengthening of the Christian community.

Do I trust in God, knowing that, in everything I do, he is present and he guides me?
