Saint Paul - The First Hermit (229-342).
Saint Paul was born in Egypt and became an orphan at the age of fifteen. His pagan brother-in-law denounced him, and Saint Paul, rather than remain where his faith was in danger, entered the barren desert, trusting that God would supply his wants. Saint Paul, The Patriarch of Hermits, died in his one hundred and thirteenth year.
