A Prince, Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker of the Kiev Near Caves (12th century) left his family to become a monk. He worked in the monastery's kitchen, served as gatekeeper, and grew a garden around his cell; also, he funded two churches in the area. Saint Nicholas was the first Russian prince to accept monasticism; his brothers ridiculed him, and his doctor told him fasting had weakened him. Saying this the doctor fell ill and was only cured by the saint's prayers. (Oct 14)
