Saint Paul of Plousias

Paul of Plousias lived during the time of iconoclasts. Seeing that they behaved with a lot of anger and fury against Christ's Church, that they reversed the accuracy of the laws, that they wiped out the figures on the holy icons and that they destroyed the decency and the adornment of the holy churches, he shot them with words as if with arrows. So, he suffered banishment, persecutions and many other hardships from them for the honour and veneration of the holy icon of Christ.od.
