Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Tikhon of Zadonsk

Moving right along...

Happy Feast of St. Tikhon of Zadonsk!


A Russian-born peasant, who eventually became a monk, and then a bishop!

He is better known in the East, but has had an impact in the West as well, especially considering his concerns and efforts on behalf of the poor and suffering. 

St. Tikhon died in 1783.

St. Tikhon of Zadonsk, pray for us!
