This saint was of the tribe of Niksic, from the village of Zupa, of poor and devout parents, Radoje and Yacima. To learn the ascetic life, he lived first in the monastery of Moraca, where he became abbot. The Turks drove him out of there, and he settled in Rovaski Turmanj, in the place now called Celiste. After that, he moved again and settled in a cell at Piperi, where he remained to his death in toil and godly asceticism. He entered peacefully into rest in the Lord on May 20th, 1697. His relics are preserved there to this day, and glorify Christ our God and Stephen the man of God by their many wonders.
