2nd SUNDAY OF GREAT LENT¬† (Synaxis of all the Monastic Fathers of the Kiev Caves)
Saint Sava of the Caves lived in the Near Caves of the Kiev Caves monastery during the thirteenth century.¬† In the manuscripts, in the “Book of the Saints,” and in the Canon of the Services to the Fathers of the Kiev Caves, he is called a wonderworker.
His memory is celebrated on April 24 because of his namesake, the Holy Martyr Sava Stratelates.
