    REASONABLE THEODOR STUDIT Born in 758 in Constantinople in the family of pious Christians, he received a serious and systematic education. At that time, the Iconoclast heresy supported by the emperor Constantine spread widely in the empire. In obedience to their Orthodox feeling, Theodore's parents distributed the property to the poor, parted, and took monastic vows. Their son became widely known in the capital as a zealous exposer of the iconoclastic heresy. After the VII Ecumenical Council, which denounced and rejected iconoclasm, Theodore with his brothers Joseph and Euthymius and his uncle, blissful Plato (commemorated April 18), retired to the wilderness, to the monastic life. Gradually, a hungry monk began to flock to the temple in the town of Sakudian, not far from Olympus, which the brothers built. Thus a monastery arose, the blessed Plato became its igumen. The life of the monk Theodore was truly ascetic. He worked on the hardest black works, kept the fast strictly, every day he confessed to the spiritual father - the old man Plato, carefully followed his advice and instructions, and spent daily time on spiritual reflections.



    After several years of monastic life, he took the priest's office. When blissful Plato retired, the brethren unanimously chose Theodore as hegumen of the monastery. At his post, he boldly denounced the powers that be, including the emperors who succeeded each other, violating church ordinances. For this, he was first sent into exile in Solun by Emperor Constantine IV, whence he was freed by Empress Saint Irene, then exiled by Emperor Nicephorus, then by Iconoclast Emperor Leo the Armenian. After Leo forbade icon-reading and gave holy icons to reproach, Theodore made a religious procession with the brethren around the monastery with highly raised icons. The Emperor angrily threatened holy death, but the Monk continued to openly affirm the faithful in Orthodoxy. Then the emperor sent Theodore and his student Nicholas to a new link. Tormented by the executioners who were sent to them by the emperor, almost deprived of food and drink, covered with sores, Theodore and Nicholas endured everything with prayer and thanksgiving to the Lord. In Smyrna, where the martyrs were eventually transferred, Theodore healed the commander, the royal nephew and like-minded person, from the cruel death, telling him to repent of the atrocities of iconoclasm. However, he again fell into heresy and died.Lev the Armenian, killed by his own warriors, was replaced even though by the wicked but tolerant emperor Michael II Travil. He freed all Orthodox fathers and confessors from imprisonment, but he forbade the veneration of icons in the capital. Theodore did not want to return to Constantinople and decided to settle in the city of Chersonese. There he performed daily Divine Liturgy in the church. Having foreshadowed his death, Theodore called on the brethren and bequeathed to them to preserve Orthodoxy, to honor the holy icons and to observe the monastic charter — after which he withdrew to the Lord. During his life and after his death, he performed many miracles: those who invoked his name got rid of fires, attacks from wild animals, received healings, giving thanks to God and His holy saint - Theodore Studite.
