St. Prochoros

Prochoros was one of the seven deacons ordained by the apostles and later became the bishop of Nicomedia. According to tradition he followed John the Evangelist to Patmos and wrote about his life, his miracles and his apostolic work. Some scholars have raised doubts as to whether he really was a disciple of John, as his name is not mentioned in the ecclesiastical writings of Early Christian times and furthermore his texts contain mistakes and inaccuracies. But other experts maintain that the mistakes are the result of the later copying of the texts. His memory is celebrated on the 28th of June.
