Day of St. Nikita the Stylite on June 6: what to pray to the old man
The day of Nikita the Stylite is a religious and popular holiday. On this day, Orthodox believers pray to the saint for gaining the mind and rejecting non-pious deeds.
According to the surviving documents, Nikita Stylnik lived in the twelfth century in Pereslavl-Zalessky. The beginning of his life did not differ in righteousness: having married early, he committed many evil deeds, oppressing the poor and collecting too heavy duties. However, after visiting the church, Nikita the Stylite was instructed by the holy prophet Isaiah to stop doing evil and abandoning his former way of life.
The words of the prophet made Nikita the Stylite think again, and he decided to leave home and family in order to devote his life to serving the Lord.
In the monastery, he prayed tirelessly, trying to get rid of the sins of his former life. Nikita Stolpnik settled in a secluded place and rumors of his heroism quickly reached people. Pilgrims began to flock to him for advice. The saint received the gift of healing from the Lord and helped everyone who spoke to him for help.
Nikita the Stylite died at the hands of the gangsters who decided to steal the chains with which he bound himself. After finding his relics in 2000, pilgrims continue to visit his place of solitude, as well as a holy spring dug to the saints.
