Our venerable and God-bearing father '''Zosima''' (also variously ''Zosimus'', ''Zosimos'' or ''Zosimas'') was a holy [[monastic]] who encountered St. [[Mary of Egypt]] in the desert during the sixth century.  He brought the story of her life back to the brothers at his [[monastery]]. He is commemorated on [[April 4]], and with St. Mary of Egypt on [[April 1]].
