January 2: Repose of Saint Seraphim of Sarov

"Acquire the spirit of peace, and thousands around you will be saved."

Today we commemorate Saint Seraphim of Sarov, patron of our diocesan cathedral in Dallas, Texas, and one of the most beloved saints of the Russian people.

An account of his life is available here.

Holy Seraphim, well pleasing to God, we turn to you, for you are the sure helper and intercessor for our souls!
