2 Sara Di Diego = "The following is a prayer to Saint Mitrofan specifically:O most praiseworthy hierarch of Christ and Wonderworker, Mitrophan!Receive this humble prayer of us sinners, who take refuge in thee,and in thy loving intercession pray our Lord and God Jesus Christ,that, regarding us in His mercy, He may grant us pardon of our sins voluntary and involuntary,and in His loving kindness deliver us from the troubles, sorrows, and ills of soul and body that beset us;that He may grant us to complete this temporal life in repentance,and that He may vouchsafe unto us, sinful and unworthy though we be, His heavenly Kingdom:so that, with all the Saints, we may glorify His endless mercy,with His Unoriginate Father, and His Holy, and Life-creating Spirit, unto ages of ages.Amen.Source:"
3 Sara Di Diego = "Saint Mitrofan's popularity increased after Tsar Nicholas I visited his burial site.  In fact the first Moscow church was named after him. However after the Bolsheviks got into power, they confiscated all of St. Mitrofan's relics.  In 1989, they were finally returned to the Russian Orthodox church.Work Cited:"
