Our Righteous Father John of Kronstadt: The renowned author of My Life in Christ, Saint John was a married priest who lived with his wife in virginity.Â Through his untiring labours, love, simplicity, and especially prayer, he was granted great gifts of clairvoyance and miracle-working.Â âThe chief thing in prayer, for which we must care above all, is clear-sighted faith in the Lord,â said Saint John.Â âAsk simply, without the slightest doubt: then God will be everything to you, accomplishing in an instant great and wonderful things.âÂ With this faith, he performed countless miracles each day for the thousands of people that flocked to him from all over Russia.Â His great piety is an example for all Christians today.Â Saint John is especially called upon to open the mind and comprehension of children.
