Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 11: $2740)

Saint Isaiah of the Kiev Caves (+ 1115)

St. Isaiah of the Kiev Caves (Feast Day - May 15)

Venerable Isaiah struggled in asceticism at the Kiev Caves Lavra from the late 11th to the early 12th centuries. He pleased the Lord with his life of silence and tireless labor, for which he is called a "lover of labor." The Saint also had a special grace to resist demonic attacks. He reposed in the Lord on May 15, 1115. His relics rest in the Near Caves of the Kiev Caves Lavra.
