Our father among the saints Gury (+1563) was the first Archbishop of Kazan. He is commemorated by the church on December 5.

Life

Gregory Grigoroevic Rugotin was born in Radonezh to a poor but aristocratic family [1]. He entered the service of Prince Ivan Penkov, where after some years he was unjustly accused of having an affair with the wife of the prince, for which he was thrown into prison. It is said that after two years, he was miraculously released one day when his cell was filled with extraordinary light and the door was opened[2].
