    On this day the church honors the memory of St. Hilarion

    April ( March according to the old calendar style) in Orthodox churches the Day of Remembrance of St. Hilarion, who served as rector of the Pelikitsky monastery, is celebrated. He was named Hilarion the New to distinguish him from Hilarion of Dalmatia, who lived in the same period.

    From a young age, Hilarion revered the Lord and desired to lead a monastic life. Having become a monk, he shut himself up: he prayed to God, took a vow of silence, kept fasts, refrained from carnal passions, and did good deeds to those in need. For his beneficence and exemplary obedience among the rest of the monks, he was ordained a presbyter, and after that he was appointed hegumen (priest) of the Pelikite Monastery, located near the Dardanelles Strait.

    The Lord rewarded Hilarion with wisdom and the gift to work miracles. A saint could heal a seriously ill person with a prayer, restore sight to a blind person, or expel demons from his body. He also became famous for calling rain when crops were lost due to drought, helped in filling the catch of fishing nets, drove insects and mice from the fields in famine years. During his life, Hilarion wrote works instructing Christians to lead a moral life.

    Once on Maundy Thursday, warriors broke into the monastery, led by the iconoclast Lachanodrakon. They shamelessly interrupted the ongoing service, staged a rout, and the monks who were in the monastery were subjected to terrible torture and humiliation. the monk was put in chains and sent to prison, where they were martyred. The remaining monks were abused: they were beaten, doused with tar and burned their faces with fire, some had their noses cut out. The monastery itself was set on fire.

    It is believed that Hilarion was among the monks taken to prison. The exact dates are unknown, but there are two versions of when Hilarion fell victim to the iconoclasts. Some argue that this happened under the emperor Leo the Armenian, a fighter against icon worshipers at the end of the 8th century. Others believe that the torment took place during the reign of Emperor Leo III the Isaurian, at the beginning of the 9th century.
