Anasthasia Logacheva, The Cave-Dweller

February 12 is the commemoration of the Cave-Dweller Anasthasia Logacheva (1875).
athanasius-nun-1
Blessed by St. Seraphim of Sarov (1759–1833), to become a hermit, Anasthasia had to wait seventeen years looking after her parents before following her vocation; at length her fame as an ascetic and spiritual mother led to her appointment as Abbess of a monastery in the newly evangelised Altai region.
