Our Holy Father Paphnutius of Borovsk
(May 1)



The son of a Tartar noble who had earlier accepted the Christian faith, he became a monk at the age of twenty and remained in his monastery to the age of ninety-four, when he entered into rest in the Lord. He was a virgin and an ascetic, and, because of this, a great wonderworker and seer. He died in 1478.
