|Saint Nickolas II is carrying relics of Saint Seraphim of Sarov - August, 1903|
Our Righteous Father St. Seraphim the Wonderworker was born in the town of Kursk, Russia in 1759. In 1825, the Most holy Theotokos appeared to the Saint. This good soul and servant of our Lord fell asleep in the Lord on January 2/15, 1833. In Sarov on July 19/August 1, 1903, he was canonized a saint and in the year of 1903 and in the year 2003 will be the One Hundred Anniversary of his holy canonization. It was the Royal Martyrs Tsar Nicholas, and Tsarina Alexandra of Russia who promoted the idea of the act of Holy Canonization to the Synod of Bishops and as well attended the services of Canonization. While St. Seraphim lived many miracles took place, and many people found God once again, as well where healed from sickness, all because of the prayers of this loving Saint. Even after St. Seraphim reposed in the Lord miracles continue to happen until this day.
