Abba Paul was from Tamouh. Because he was inclined since his young age to his solitary life, he went to Ansena Mountain where he lived with his disciple Ezekiel, who was the witness of his virtues.
When our father St. Bishoy went to Mount Ansena, he was joined by the saint Abba Paula. The Lord Christ foretold Abba Paula, “Your body will be buried with that of my chosen Bishoy.” So, when Abba Paula departed, his body was placed with the body of St. Bishoy. When they wanted to move the body of St. Bishoy to the wilderness of St. Macarius in Scete, they carried it onto a boat, and left St. Paula’s behind; however the boat would not move, until they finally brought the body of St. Paula and placed it beside St. Bishoy’s body. Then they brought them to the wilderness of Sheheat (Scete).
May his prayers be with us all, and Glory be to God forever. Amen.
