St. Mark the Ascetic

Joyous feast! St. Mark isn't often well known these days (unless you're an avid reader of The Philokalia of course!), but he's my patron saint and therefore known to me :-). More on his life can be found here, while some of his writings can be found here. May his blessing and prayers be with us all!


  1. A good saint to have during this season of fasting. Nameday blessings from Ireland!

  2. Many thanks! And he most certainly is - a healthy reminder of where I am and the direction in which I need to be moving!
