Saint Alexios, the Holy Man of God was a fourth-century monastic who is known for his dedication to Christ in anonymity. He was born in Rome to a wealthy family but lived in Edessa as a beggar and shared the alms he received with other poor people. A miraculous vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary singled him out as a "Man of God." His feast day is commemorated by the Church on March 17.
