Our Holy Father Agapius
(March 1)



A novice with a staretz near the monastery of Vatopedi, he was cap-tured by pirates and sold as a slave in Magnesia. After twelve years he was miraculously freed and returned to Vatopedi by the aid of the most holy Mother of God. He baptised his former owner and became his confessor. Spending the rest of his life in asceticism at Vatopedi, he departed this life peacefully in the Lord.
