[[Image:Seraphim of Sarov.jpg|100px|left]]Our venerable father '''[[Seraphim of Sarov]]''' was born on [[July 19]], 1754, in Kursk, Russia.  At the age of 10, Seraphim became seriously ill. During the course of his illness, he saw the [[Mother of God]] in his sleep, who promised to heal him; she did so through a religious procession in Kursk with the locally revered [[miracle]]-working [[icon]] of the Mother of God.
 
 
 
At the age of 18, Seraphim firmly decided to become a [[monk]]. From day one in the monastery in Sarov, Russia, exceptional abstinence from food and slumber were the distinguishing features of his life. He ate once a day, and little. His taking of the monastic vows occurred in 1786, when he was 27 years old. He was given the name Seraphim, which in Hebrew means "fiery," or "burning."  He later withdrew as an [[ascetic]] hermit and then, near the end of his life, became an [[elder]] to all who came to his hermitage.
 
 
 
The Church commemorates St. Seraphim on [[January 2]], and the opening of his [[relics]] on [[July 19]].  He is considered a [[wonder-worker]].
