Description

Oil Dedicated to St Alexander Svirsky

The St Alexander Svirsky is dedicated to the Eastern Orthodox saint. He was a monk and hegumen of Russian Orthodox Church.

Amos was born in 1448 to an ordinary peasant family in the Novgorod Republic.  At the age of 19, he left home for the Valaam Monastery.  He spent his life as a monk.  Also, he spent some periods of total isolation from society.

In 1506, the Archbishop of Novgorod, appointed him Hegumen of the Trinity monastery.  This later became known as Alexander-Svirsky Monastery.

The saint became known for his righteous life and contemplative miracles. His prodigies included the appearances of the Trinity. And of Mother Mary with the Holy Child. His day is commemorated on April 17 and August 30.

The relics of the saint were found on April 17.  1641.  The relics found incorruptible.

On October 22, 1918, the coffin with the relics of Alexander Svirsky opened.  The reliquary weighed over 40 pounds of silver.  The Soviet report claimed a wax doll found.  However, the testimony of the monks present differed. Also, a later soviet commission demonstrated that they found a human body instead of a wax figure
