Life

The Holy Schemamonk Silvanus (Silouan) of the Kiev Caves, zealously preserved the purity of both soul and body, he subdued his flesh with fasting and vigils, and he cleansed his soul with prayer and meditation on God. The Lord granted him an abundance of spiritual gifts: a prayerful boldness towards God, constant joy in the Lord, clairvoyance and wonderworking. The monk lived at the end of the thirteenth and beginning of the fourteenth centuries. His relics rest in the Caves

Тропарь преподобного Силуана, схимника Печерского, в Дальних пещерах
глас 3
Многаго ти ради воздержания и безмернаго пощения/ приемый свыше благодать чудотворения/ и к Богу велие дерзновение стяжавый,/ постником удобрение, Силуане,/ Тому молися,/ да подаст нам мир и велию милость.

Кондак преподобного Силуана, схимника Печерского, в Дальних пещерах
глас 8
В бденном и трезвенном молении/ и крепком всегдашнем пребывая пощении,/ тело свое умерщвлял еси, Силуане преподобне,/ и многих учением твоим в тыяжде добродетели наставляя,/ привел еси Христови./ Емуже в веселии днесь предстоя,/ поминай нас, чтущих память твою.
