Today’s Proof of BLACKNESS: SAINT PATAPIOS OF THEBES
Again, you needed to know about this and to see the associated imagery before the racial color display is altered by becoming lighter in skin complexion or is destroyed. The hidden hand is slowly erasing the black evidence from black history and replacing it with white his-story.
St. Patapios was born in the 4th century A.D. in Thebes, Egypt to wealthy Christian parents!
Patapios, at a young age, lived the life of a hermit in the desert. Many visited him to take his advice and to listen to his preaching. Later in his life, Patapios left Thebes and the desert for Constantinople. There he met two other ascetics, Varas and Ravoulas which both became saints. Saint Ravoulas was hermit at the gate of Romanos. Saint Varas built the monastery of St John the Baptist at Petrion. Saint Patapios of Thebes is the Patron Saint of Dropsy. Dropsy is an abnormal accumulation of fluid in the interstitial, which are locations beneath the skin or in one or more cavities of the body. It is clinically shown as swelling.
Saint Patapios’ memory is celebrated on 8 December (main celebration) and also at the Tuesday 2 days after the Sunday of Easter (in memory of the day that his relic was discovered). His relic is kept at the female monastery of Saint Patapios at Loutraki, a spa town near Athens, Greece.
St. Patapios lived at the area of Blachernae at the Xero Oros (dry mountain) and he established a monastery, the Monastry of the Egyptians, where he eventually died.
