St. Savvas the New (Modern Orthodox Saints, Vol. 8) by Constantine Cavarnos



St. Savvas the New (d. 1948) is the patron saint of the Greek island of Kalymnos, where he dwelt during the last twenty years of his life as the priest and spiritual guide of the nuns of the Convent of All Saints. He was a remarkable ascetic, confessor, iconographer, and a miracle-worker with a growing reputation as a healer. In this book, the author gives an account of the life, character, message, miracles, and icons of this Saint, as well as his nine "Definitions of Irreproachable Monastic Conduct". A richly rewarding resource for monastics and laypeople alike.
