“The divine Nectarios of Aegina, who after Sts. Cosmas Aitolos and Nicodemos the Hagiorite is the most widely known Greek Orthodox Saint, was born on October 1, 1846, in Silyvria, Thrace. At Holy Baptism he was named Anastasios. His parents, Demos and Balou (popular for Vasiliki) Kephalas, were simple, pious Christians. They brought him up in a manner pleasing to God, and did what their very limited means allowed for his formal education.” —“Introductory”
