Venerable Isaac, Dalmatus and Faust are celebrated today

Venerable Issacius, Dalmatus and Faustus

Isaac is celebrated once again separately (June 12). St. Dalmat was first an officer of the emperor Theodosius the Great and the emperor kept him in great honor. But when the spirit awoke in him, he despised the world, left the rank, took his only son Faustus and went with him to the suburbs of Constantinople, to the convent of St. Isaac, where they both received a monastic haircut. All Dalmatians surrendered to the godly life, to the great joy of the elder Isaac. And when the hour of his death approached, the old man appointed Dalmat as abbot instead of himself. Later that family was called Dalmatian after him.
