Abraham of Rostov

Saint Abraham of Rostov was born in the tenth century, to a non-Christian family in Galich, Russia. After a near-death experience and healing, Abraham converted to Christianity and became a monk.

He preached the Gospel in his area, during which time he also destroyed an idol of Veles. Abraham founded the monastery of the Theophany in Rostov, as well two parish churches.
