Saint Nicholas Planas was born in 1851 and had foreknowledge as a very young child.
“Very frequently little Nicholas Planas would hide in the Chapel wearing a bed sheet, and he would chant whatever he knew, as he was still a small child. At other times he would gather his friends, and they would ‘celebrate’ the Divine Liturgy…”
He was married at the age of seventeen, and had a son named John. His wife reposed at a young age and Saint Nicholas lived his life as a Priest full of humility and the Grace of God, and those who loved him knew him as Papa Nicholas.
