St Seraphim of Sarov taught that the grace of the Holy Spirit is given particularly through prayer. With an introductory biography of the saint, this book concentrates upon a record made by Nicolas Motovilov of a conversation with St Seraphim in 1831, soon after Seraphim had healed him of paralysis. It was discovered in 1902 and published in the Moscow Journal of July 1903, the month Seraphim was canonized in the Russian Orthodox Church.
