Saint Onophrius was a hermit born in Ethiopia, the son of an Abyssinian prince, who was born and lived in the fourth century AD.

The life of Saint Onophrius is told in a memoir by the ascetic Saint Paphnutius. Both men are believed to have been born in the 3rd century.

In the writings left by Paphnutius, he writes that he settled in the desert of Egypt to live the life of a hermit, like St Francis of Assisi centuries later. After a while, he ran out of food and water and, by the grace of God, carried on alone.

Then, suddenly, I saw a man approaching who looked like a wild beast. He was terrifying in appearance, hairy all over, with a skirt of leaves. When he approached me, he was terrified and feared that I would kill him.

He ran to the top of a hill, but he went to the foot of the hill, bent down and looked at it and said: ‘Come down to me, most holy one, for I am a man like you, living in this desolate solitude’, for God’s sake”.

The man, Saint Onofre, went on to explain that he had lived as a hermit in this desert for sixty years. He had previously been in a monastery in Thebaid with 100 holy brothers, but in the light of the example of the prophets Elijah (Elias) and John the Baptist, he decided to take up the life of a hermit.

The angels brought him food and water to survive, and at weekends they gave him Holy Communion. Paphnutius stayed with St Onofre for a short time until the latter’s death, which was accompanied by the singing of the angels.

Western portraits of St Onofre include the abundant hair mentioned by Paphnutius. Images in the Orthodox religion (See: What is the Orthodox religion) strive for greater dignity, reducing the hairiness to a long beard and retaining the skirt of leaves.
