Our Holy Father Seraphim of Sarov
He was one of the greatest Russian ascetics and wonderworkers, with profound spiritual discernment. Born in 1759, he departed this life in 1833.
He was distinguished by a great humility. When being praised by all the world, he referred to himself as "the poor wretch Seraphim".
