The Lives of the Saints.  1866.
 
February 22
SS. Thalassius and Limneus, Confessors
 
THEY were cotemporaries with the great Theodoret, bishop of Cyr, and lived in his diocess. The former dwelt in a cavern, in a neighbouring mountain, and was endowed with extraordinary gifts of the Holy Ghost, but was a treasure unknown to the world. His disciple, St. Limneus, was famous for miraculous cures of the sick, while he himself bore patiently the sharpest cholics and other distempers, without any human succour. He opened his enclosure only to Theodoret, his bishop, but spoke to others through a window. See Theodoret, Phil. c. 22.  1
