  • One of the greatest ascetic figures of the Egyptian deserts, Onoufrios, came from Persia. As a child he still showed a fiery desire for complete devotion to God. At a young age, he joined a coenobitic fraternity, where for several years he practiced mental and physical restraint and obedience. His great humility made his brothers love him dearly. When he matured more in age, Onoufrios wanted to go deeper into the desert, to know and imitate the life of its ascetics there. With great sorrow the fraternity released this select member. After walking a long way in the desert, he met the hut of the hermit Hermias, who was waiting for him with divine revelation. Hermias led him to a hut, under a huge palm tree, next to which the waters of a clean spring were clearing.There Onoufrios indulged in greater spiritual practice, and his fame spread to all the hermits, who often went to consult him and receive his wish. Finally, when Abbas Pafnoutios once visited him, he breathed his last, and Pafnoutios buried him under the huge palm tree. He thus reminded everyone of the words of the Apostle Paul: "Exercise yourself in godliness" (1 Timothy 4: 7). That is, exercise and accustom yourself to the constant practice of holy life.in all the words of the Apostle Paul: "he trained himself to be pious" (1 Timothy, d. 7).
