- Saint Isidora
Isidora lived in the Egyptian convent of Tabennisi [http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=5652 Catholic Online] ] . She veiled her head with an old dishrag and some time was treated with contempt by other nuns. One day, the hermit Saint Pitirim visited the convent after the vision of angel, who had told him to "find an elect vessel full of the grace of God"... "by the crown that shines above her head" [http://www.catholic.org/saints/saint.php?saint_id=5652 Catholic Online] ] .
The aforesaid crown was reportedly seen at Saint Isidora. After that everyone in the monastery fell to the feet of Pitirim, confessing in repentance their disrespectful attitude to Isidora, who had suffered all insults and even beatings humbly, pretending to be mad [ [http://www.fatheralexander.org/booklets/english/lavsaik_e.htm#_Toc22606290 Abba Pitirim and blessed Isidora, by Bishop Mileant] ] .
Several days later Isidora, who could not bear the honors and apologies, secretly left the convent. The following period of her life remained unknown. It is said that Isidora passed away no later than the year 365 A.D.
