Relics of St. Nicholas reside in the monastery church
St. Tikhon's Monastery has a special connection with St. Nicholas since Archimandrite Sergius brought back relics in 2016. Below are several outlines of the saints life, who is commemorated today. This quote, at the end of his life, reflects his great humility...
"Here I look back upon my life... And what do I find? Only darkness! God alone accomplished everything, while I... such a nonentity, zero, literally zero! And if a righteous man shall scarcely be saved, then where shall I, a sinner, find myself? I'm worthy of the very depths of hell."
O holy saint Nicholas The enlightener of Japan,
You share a dignity and the throne of the Apostles; You are a wise and faithful servant of Christ,
A temple chosen by the Divine Spirit, A vessel overflowing with the love of Christ.
O hierarch equal to the Apostles, Pray to the Life-Creating Trinity
For all your flock and for the whole world.
