IFC- MAN OF GOD
Exiled unjustly, convicted without a trial, slandered without cause. The life of St. Nektarios of Aegina was one of persecution and prosecution. A priest of the common people, his popularity provoked the jealousy of the clergy in Alexandria and as a result, he was defrocked and expelled from Egypt. Nektarios continued to care for the poor, taught peasants girls to read and write, and performed miracles.
