The 12th of June is the feast day of Saint Onofre, a hermit who lived for more than sixty years in a cave in the desert of Thebes, Egypt, after learning the teachings of Jesus and Christianity.

Trying to imitate the solitude and austerity of St John the Baptist, he lived on the fruits of a date tree and a palm tree that grew near the cave where he slept and lived.

He was very popular in the Middle Ages, first with monks and then with weavers in general, because he was depicted “dressed only with his abundant hair and a loincloth”. He died around 400 AD and was buried by Saint Panafcio, another hermit who found him and kept him.

St. Onofre told him that God had sent him to bury him as his death was near, which soon happened, and he dug a hole in the mountainside and laid him there.

Later, he tried to stay in the cave to live in imitation of Saint Onofre, but the date palm that fed him withered and dried up, so he decided to go to the monastery and spread the wonderful life of Saint Onofre.
