Born on October 18, 1826 of a poor, country fmaily, our Holy Righteous Father John, the Wonderworker of Kronstadt, was brought up in the fear of God, and, at a very young age, began to show a zeal for prayer at home and in church. Living in circumstances of extreme poverty, he became acquainted with a hard life of grief, tear and suffering for his neighbour. After his graduation from the Archangelsk Seminary and while studying at the Academy, St John intended to become a missionary in North America and bring to the unenlightened, materialistic world the message of the Gospel: the Life in Christ. But God's providence had prepared him for an apostolic task among his own people, at St. Andrew's Cathedral, Kronstadt.
St. John was the prophet foreordained by God to call the straying Russian people to repentance and to return to their ancient path of piety, the path of true Orthodoxy - the Life in Christ. Had the nation heeded his call, quite possibly the terrible October revolution might not have befallen the Russian Land.
