Tomorrow, June 8, is the day of remembrance of the Holy Apostle Karp in the Orthodox calendar. He was an apostle from the age of 70, a disciple and constant companion of the Apostle Paul. For example, Paul mentions Carp's name in the Second Epistle to Timothy. In his house, the Apostle Paul left his books and felon. Carp was a virtuous man with a pure mind. Once I went with a sermon to the island of Crete, where I met with Dionysius the Areopagite. It was an Athenian thinker and Christian saint. According to one version, the Apostle Carp died at a respectable age in Beria.
