March 27 – Saint John of Egypt
There is not much known of John’s childhood, except that he learned to be a carpenter. He decided at a very young age to be a hermit and lived in prayer. Many felt attracted and became his disciples. They began building a monastery around them. Even though he became famous, John never abandoned his life of humility.
