Saint Seraphim of Sarov, the greatest of the 19th-century Russian Orthodox elders, is venerated today by Christians throughout the world. Follow the astonishing post-Soviet discovery of St. Seraphim’s relics in the basement of an anti-religious museum and the fulfillment of his prophecy regarding the restoration of Diveyevo’s Holy Trinity-St. Seraphim Monastery. Eyewitness reports describe St. Seraphim’s 1903 canonization initiated by Tsar Nicholas II and the elder’s remarkable conversation with disciple Nikolai Motovilov on acquiring the grace of the Holy Spirit – one of the most spiritually-charged narratives ever published. Finally, meet descendants of Nikolai Motovilov in Russia and America who describe their deep ties to the saint who greeted each of his visitors with the words, “My Joy!”
