Saints and Feasts: Saint Nahum of Ochrid, the Disciple of St Cyril and Methodius, Equal to the Apostles

Saint Nahum was a disciple of Sts Cyril and Methodius (May 11), one of their coworkers known as the Five Followers.

St Nahum was a man of great learning, and he spoke several languages. After a visit to Rome, he settled on the shores of Lake Ochrid. There he built a monastery at the time when St Clement of Ochrid (July 27) was serving as a bishop.

Many monks gathered around St Nahum, who was known as a great wonderworker and a man of prayer. He also labored to translate the Holy Scriptures from Greek into Slavonic.

St Nahum fell asleep in the Lord in 910, and his holy relics continue to work miracles of healing for those who venerate them in faith.
