A documentary "Man of God," life of St. John of Shanghai and San Francisco.
Our father among the saints John (Maximovitch), Archbishop of Shanghai and San Francisco (1896-1966), was a diocesan bishop of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia (ROCOR) who served widely from China to France to the United States.
He departed this life on June 19 (O.S.) / July 2 (N.S.), 1966, and was officially glorified by the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad on July 2, 1994. His glorification was later recognized for universal veneration by the Patriarchate of Moscow on July 2, 2008.
Saint Silouan was born Simeon Ivanovich Antonov in 1866 to Russian Orthodox parents who came from the village of Sovsk in Russia's Tambov region. At the age of twenty-seven he left his native Russia and came to Mount Athos, where he became a monk at the Monastery of St. Panteleimon and was given the name Silouan, the Russian version of the Biblical name Silvanus. An ardent ascetic, he received the grace of unceasing prayer and saw Christ in a vision. After long years of spiritual trial, he acquired great humility and inner stillness. He prayed and wept for the whole world as for himself, and he put the highest value on love for enemies. Thomas Merton, a twentieth-century Catholic monk, described Silouan as “the most authentic monk of the twentieth century.” St Silouan died on September 24, 1938. He was glorified by the Ecumenical Patriarchate in 1987. Though barely literate, he was sought out by pilgrims for his wise counsel. His writings were edited by his disciple and pupil, Archimandrite Sophrony. Father Sophrony has written the life of the saint along with a record of St. Silouan's teachings in the book Saint Silouan the Athonite.

He was formally glorified as saint by the Holy Synod of the Serbian Orthodox Church on May 2, 2010, and commemorated on June 1 each year.
The life of St. Iakovos Tsalikis, the recently canonized elder of Evia, who labored in prayer at the Holy Monastery of St. David in Greece.
Our righteous father John of Kronstadt (Иоанн Кронштадский; October 19, 1829, in Sura – December 20, 1908, in Kronstadt) was an archpriest of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was born as Ivan Ilyich Sergiyev (Иван Ильич Сергиев) in 1829. From 1855, he served as a priest in St. Andrew's cathedral in Kronstadt. Here, he greatly committed himself to charity, especially for those who were remote from the church, and traveled extensively throughout the Russian empire. He was a member of the right extremist movement Sojuz Russkogo Naroda (Alliance of the Russian people) but did not commit himself politically. He was already greatly venerated at the time he died. He was glorified by the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia in 1964 and by the Russian Orthodox Church on June 8, 1990. St. John Maximovitch of Shanghai and San Francisco played an active role in preparation of St. John's canonization. Many churches around the world and Ioannovsky Convent, the second largest monastery in St. Petersburg (by community size) are dedicated to St. John of Kronstadt. His feast days are commemorated on December 20 and October 19.
St. Iakovos Tsalikis was born on November 5, 1920 in Livisi, Asia Minor. His childhood years were very difficult, as this area was and still is dominated by the Turks. When he was two years of age, all of the Livisianoi were ordered to leave the area. Approximately 2000 women, children and old men were forced to flee, frightened, staggering, and with saddened hearts without hope. Little Jacob was held in the arms of his mother. His brothers, George and Tasoula, were only four years and forty days old. Without the slightest financial supplies, since the few things they could get were seized by the Turks, they began a harrowing journey that lasted a week or more. They finally arrived in Itea. The head of the family was now the grandmother of James, Mama Despina, a woman with fiery faith, unfailing patience and capacity. In 1924,the tormented family of the Elder, finally transferred to North Evia, in the village "Farakla". Our Elder,said that in the house, three things dominated: love, fasting and charity. Those three things were a basic staple in the family. Love filled their house. As for charity, no one passed by the house, without receiving the care of his grandmother or his mother, Theodora. When even some girls were in marriageable age, she helped as long as possible. Charity was always abounded and most of it was in done in secret. This is why the Elder gave emphasis to those three things love, fasting and charity...
His upbringing was very important to his spiritual development. "The root is very important," the Elder often said. He was fortunate to feel this root as his first and most important educator, in the life of faith and piety, in the face of his mother, Theodora. She was embellished with virtues of charity, continence, fasting, a good work ethic, and tidiness.
