Our Holy Father, the Martyr Nicetas
(April 4)



He was a Slav from Albania. As a monk of the Holy Mountain, he went to Serres, where he disputed with the mullahs about the Faith. Being unable to overcome him by reason, the Turks put him to tor-ture, under which St Nicetas died and gave his soul to God in 1808.
