The Church on this day celebrates the memory of St. Theodore Trikhina

620 The Monk Theodore Trikhina, that is, the sackcloth, was the son of wealthy parents and came from the city of Constantinople. In his youth, having left his parents and wealth and glory for God, he retired from his fatherland to a desert monastery in Thrace and became a monk.

Here he led such a strict lifestyle that he became very exhausted of his flesh, so that in his face he became like a dead man. For whole nights he stood at prayer and, despite the cold and frost, he never covered his head and wore only one prickly hairy garment, for which he was nicknamed, as it is said, sackcloth or trichina. Then the monastery in which the saint spent his harsh life began to be called by his own name.

For his deeds, Saint Theodore received power from God over demons, and, having performed many miracles, he departed in peace to the Lord. He performed miracles not only during his lifetime, but also after his repose, for from his holy relics a fragrant healing myrrh flowed, with which, for the glory of Christ our God, many diseases were cured and unclean spirits were expelled.
