Elder Jonah of Kiev
A Brief Account of His Life and Struggles (ca. 1794–1902)
by Hieromonk Ioannikios [John]
Father John presents for the first time in English the astonishing life of a saintly Russian ascetic of the last century. Elder Jonah experienced many remarkable visions of the heavenly realm, was visited by Christ Himself, and quite frequently by other Saints, including the Theotokos, who instructed him to found the Holy Trinity Monastery in Kiev.
