Venerable Nectarius the Obedient of the Kiev Near Caves

Saint Nectarius the Obedient of the Caves, a monk of the Kiev Caves monastery, pursued asceticism during the twelfth century. For his unquestioning obedience to the will of his elder, the brethren and his zeal for work,  he was termed “the Obedient.” St Nectarius was buried in the Antoniev Cave. His memory is also celebrated on September 28 and the second Sunday of Great Lent.
