A Prophecy of St. Nektarios of Aegina about St. Anthimos of Chios

St. Anthimos of Chios

Every Sunday, young Argyrios (later known as St. Anthimos of Chios) would attend church services at the Monastery of Saints Niketas, John and Joseph, otherwise known as Nea Moni, in Chios. There he met St. Nektarios, who was a Deacon at the time. After a conversation with the 8 year old Argyrios, he told the Abbot of the Monastery, Pachomios:

"Elder, do you see that child? One day he will become a Saint."

Of course, the prophecy of St. Nektarios was fulfilled.
