Saint and Feasts: St Theodoulus the Eparch of Constantinople

Saint Theodoulus was an eparch during the reign of Theodosius the Great. He resigned his position because he did not want to be distracted by vain worldly cares.

After his wife’s death, St Theodoulus gave his wealth away to the poor and became a monk. He traveled to Edessa and lived on top of a pillar for thirty years, eating only once a week.

St Theodoulus the Stylite departed to the Lord around 440.
