Saint Sergius, Abbot of Holy Trinity, Moscow

Vision to the Youth Bartholomew by Mikhail Nesterov

Vision to the Youth Bartholomew by Mikhail Nesterov (1862–1942). Baptized ‘Bartholomew’, Sergius of Radonezh (how he is most commonly referred to in the East) took the name ‘Sergius’ when he first took his monastic vows. From Wikimedia.

O God, whose blessed Son became poor that we through his poverty might be rich: Deliver us, we pray thee, from an inordinate love of this world, that inspired by the devotion of thy servant Sergius of Moscow, we may serve thee with singleness of heart, and attain to the riches of the age to come; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, who in days of trouble and rebuke didst raise up blessed Sergius to be a defender of thy people: Strengthen and confirm our brethren of the Russian Church, that holding fast the faith once for all delivered to the saints, they may worship thee and serve thee all the days of their life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
