St. Seraphim of Sarov was a Russian ascetic and wonderworker who lived at the Sarov Monastery in the 18th century. He is one of the most beloved Orthodox saints of recent times and is credited with acquiring in the fullest measure the grace and the Spirit of God. St. Seraphim taught that the acquisition of the Holy Spirit is the aim of all spiritual life, and if we acquire the Holy Spirit, thousands around us will be saved. The Church commemorates him on January 2nd (O.S.) and on July 19th (O.S.).
The Mother of God "of Tenderness" was held by St. Seraphim in the greatest reverence; ever praying before it in his monastic cell, he named it "Joy of Joys." The Theotokos is depicted with downcast eyes and arms crossed, an example of humility and silent prayer to her Son.
