                               When he was younger Theodosius felt a desire to imitate Abraham by leaving his parents,     
                               friends, relatives, and everything else for the love of God. Theodosius set out for Jerusalem   
                               at the time of the Holy Fourth Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon held in 451.

Saint Theodosius reached Antioch.     
He went to see Saint Symeon the Stylite to ask for his prayers and blessing.   
Symeon blessed him and prophesied great spiritual glory for Theodosius.
