“Matrona, come here! She will be my heir…”

Saint John of Kronstadt was at Church one day, when the 14 year old Saint Matrona of Moscow was in the crowd. She came to receive the Blessing of this Holy man, but became lost in the large crowd. Saint John called out “Matrona, come here! She will be my heir, and will become the eighth pillar of Russia.”
