Venerable Gaius

Venerable Gaius (Feast Day - December 31)


Gaius endured many divine labors,
And now he has the radiant honors of the labors.

Venerable Gaius met his end in peace.

This may be the Abba Gaius we read about in the Life of Abba Longinus by Bishop Basil of Oxyrhynchos. There we read that Abba Gaius was originally from Corinth and eventually became head of the monastery by the ninth milestone mark from Alexandria, which became known as the Monastery of Abba Gaius, and was included as one of the Hennaton monasteries.
