By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

St. Seraphim of Sarov

Saint Seraphim: Wonderworker of Sarov and his Spiritual Inheritance - Helen Kontsevitch

I know I had read this spiritual biography of St. Seraphim before at some point, but I’m glad I read it again. Kontzevitch was able to gather a wealth of accounts, both of the saint himself and of the Diveyevo monastery before its dissolution. I wish there were an updated edition with information about the monastery’s re-opening.
