“Blessed Philaretos, the 'Lover of virtue,' was born in Aretsoú in Bithynia, Western Asia Minor. From there, while a youth, he went to Constantinople, the city which for more than a millennium was the capital of the glorious Orthodox Christian Empire of Byzantium. There he became an apprentice of a tailor. At the age of seventeen, towards the end of the last century, and left for the Holy Mountain of Athos to become a monk.”
