Venerable Nikon, before his freedom was gained, informed his slave master that Jesus would release him from bondage in three days. As a consequence his master crippled Nikon's legs so that he could no longer walk. Nonetheless, three days later Nikon was carried by God to Kiev unseen.
Nikon was referred to as "the Dry" due to his intense practice of fasting.
