God is a fire that warms and kindles the heart

St Seraphim of Sarov, born Prokhor Moshnin, is one of Orthodox Russia’s most beloved wonder-workers, monks and elders (startsy).

The saint was born in 1759 in Kursk during the reign of Empress Elizabeth (Yelizaveta Petrovna), daughter of Peter I, and died near Sarov in 1833 during the reign of Emperor Nicholas I.

O Holy Father Seraphim, pray to God for us!
