Our venerable father The '''Paschal Homily''' of St. [[Pachomius John Chrysostom]] is read at the Greatend of [[Orthros]]''''' (c. 292-346 A.D.Matins) was an early Egyptian asceticat [[Pascha]], both a the feast of the [[Desert Fathers|Desert FatherResurrection]] and a founder of [[cenobiticJesus Christ]] , universally throughout the [[monasticismOrthodox Church]] in Egypt. Pachomius It was born to pagan parents in Thebaid (Upper Egypt), receiving an excellent secular education and having a good character from composed sometime during his youth. During his time ministry in the Roman army, he stayed in a prison that was used to house the new conscripts, run by Christians. He was so impressed by their love of their neighbor that he vowed to become a Christian after his military service endedlate 4th or early 5th century.
Thus in 314 Pachomius was [[baptism|baptized]] "If anyone is devout and a lover of God, let him enjoy this beautiful and radiant festival...He has mercy upon the last and began cares for the first; to practice the ascetic life. Three years later one he withdrew gives, and to the desert under other he is gracious. He both honors the guidance of work and praises the elder Palamonintention.. According to tradition, after ten years with Palamon he heard a Voice telling him to found a monastic community at Tabbenisi. He descended into hades and Palamon traveled theretook hades captive!...:For Christ, and subsequently Pachomius had a vision in which an angel came to himbeing raised from the dead, clothed in a schema (a type has become the First-fruits of monastic garment), and gave him a rule for the cenobitic lifethem that slept. This is significant because up until this time ascetics had for the most part lived alone as hermits, not together in a community. Pachomius' rule balanced the communal life with the solitary life; monks live in individual cells but work together for the common good."
By 348, Pachomius directed almost three thousand monks.

The rule interprets the Crucifixion primarily as an act of St. Pachomius influenced St. Benedict, triumphant victory over the most influential figure in Western monasticism, in preparing his own rulepowers of evil. He This is the reason for the festal hymn of the Resurrection being ''Christ is celebrated risen from the dead, trampling down death by death and upon those in the Church on [[May 15]]tombs bestowing life''.
