SS. THALASSIUS AND LIMNEUS, CC.
THEY were cotemporaries with the great Theodoret,
bishop of Cyr, and lived in his diocese. The former dwelt in a cavern
in a neighboring mountain, and was endowed with extraordinary gifts
of the Holy Ghost, but was a treasure unknown to the world. His
disciple St. Limneus was famous for miraculous cures of the sick,
while he himself bore patiently the sharpest colics and other
distempers without any human succor. He opened his enclosure only to
Theodoret, his bishop, but spoke to others through a window. See
Theodoret, Phil. c. 22.
