Saints Dalmatius, Faustus, and Isaac
Date of celebration: 03/08
Saint Dalmatian was a soldier, but quickly his godly soul was overcome by the desire to devote himself to his Lord and Creator. So he set out with his son Faustus to meet the monk Isaac (see May 30), whose fame had brought many men to him.
Dalmatius distinguished himself among the rest of the monks for his virtue so much so that he was elected abbot after the death of the pious Isaac. In fact, for his virtuous life, Dalmatios was also honored by the Third Ecumenical Synod that convened in 431 AD. in Ephesus, in which the Fathers raised the holy archimandrite.
The path of Dalmatian, who ended his life in peace, was followed by the son of Faustus, proving himself a worthy successor of his father.
As for the faithful Isaac (see May 30), he was famous for the attitude he showed towards the heretical emperor Oulis, when he met the faithful during his campaign against the Scythians. Isaac died in old age.
