Saint Theodore the Silent of the Kiev Caves

St. Theodore the Silent of the Kiev Caves (Feast Day - February 17)

Venerable Theodore the Silent of the Kiev Caves Lavra lived in the thirteenth century and was particularly noted for his silence, which he kept in order to dwell constantly in the remembrance of God, and to safeguard himself from temptation even by a word and not sin with his tongue. By this life he pleased the Lord and received from him the gift of wonderworking. According to the results of anthropological research, he died at the age of 40-45 years. His relics rest in the Far Caves.
