Happy Feast Day
Saint Moses the Black (The Ethiopian)
Feast Day: August 28
Patronage: Africa, forgiveness, nonviolence
Saint Moses the Black was an Ethiopian with great physical strength, who traveled to Egypt for adventure but got a lowly servant job. Dissatisfied with this, he turned to robbery and terrorizing the villages on the Nile. Before authorities could arrest him, he fled to a Coptic Orthodox Monastery and eventually had a conversion and became a monk. When thieves attacked the monastery, he captured them, showing pity. The thieves then too became monks. After years of humbly preaching forgiveness, he was killed trying to protect the monastery, but not before he saved 70 brother monks.
