The Relics of the Monk Sophronii

Commemorated on May 11, March 11

      The Relics of the Monk Sophronii were buried in the Farther Cave of the Kievo-Pechersk monastery. In the Kanon to the monks of the Farther Caves it gives an account of the hermit's deed as an holy ascetic, being deemed worthy of hearing angelic singing. The memory of Saint Sophronii is done separately on 11 March.
