St. Theodosius the new, the healer, was born in Athens in 862 to pious Christian parents. From an early age he showed fervent faith and was characterized by great love for his fellow men. When he decided to withdraw to the monastic life, he divided his property to those in need and went a short distance outside Athens. But many were those who went to see him and seek his council, which hindered his reading [spiritual tasks?]. For this reason and to live alone, he fled to Argos.
Note: St. Theodosius is given the epithet "the Healer", because he was a treasury of divine graces, and proved a great physician of the sick. May he intercede for us and help us!
