2.10.1 There was also Spyridon, a Cyprian man, distinguished in the Lord, who dedicated his experience herding sheep since childhood to the flock of Christ. He became known for his prophetic lifestyle. Even while he served as bishop, he did not stop shepherding his own sheep.

2.10.2 He was so kind and patient that when robbers who had tried to raid his flock were restrained by invisible chains so that they were unable to move until morning, he came near and released them from their restraints with a prayer, blessed as he was. He even gave them his best ram as they left, saying, “Young men, take this for your use, lest you leave empty-handed tonight and blame your poverty on me.”

2.10.3 We have heard many other stories of miracles related to this saint, but we will mention just one.
