At the end of the 19th century, into a rich family of Tsarist Russia, little Michael came into the world. In spite of the fact that he was born with one leg shorter than the other and had a speech impediment, young Michael pursued his journey with determination and faith. Although exiled from his homeland, he became a Russian Cadet, and then monk, seminary teacher and, eventually, Archbishop John of Shanghai and San Francisco. A great man of prayer and tireless traveler to wherever his help was needed, Saint John Maximovitch left many testimonies of his miracles up to this day on the five continents he crossed.
His angelic life was a true comfort to people who were in need and in all kinds of pain. It brings forth an exhortation to children to show love and understanding themselves to all those in sorrow.
