The Monk Julian

Commemorated on October 18

      The Monk Julian asceticised in fasting and prayer in Mesopotamia (near the River Euphrates).
      Once during the time of prayer the monk heard a voice, announcing that the emperor Julian the Apostate would soon perish. Soon the prophesy was fulfilled. Through the efforts of the monk on Mount Sinai was erected a church in memory of the Obtaining by the holy Prophet Moses of the Tablets of the Law.
