Commemorated on February 23
Polychronios, a disciple of the monk Zevinos, copying the life of his elder
spent both day and night in fasting and vigil. Chains the monk Polychronios had
not, but at the time of prayer he put upon his shoulders an heavy oaken root,
which he himself had extracted from the earth. By his prayer Saint Polychronios
interceded with God for rain during a time of drought, and for the needy he
filled up a stone vessel with oil.
