The Coptic Church, thanks be to God, has been blessed with a tremendous amount of modern saints including patriarchs, bishops, holy ascetics, priests, layman, etc... And even now, there are many known and certainly unknown living saints. It is wonderful to read about their lives and works since there proximity to us is such a great testimony to God's continuous work in the world and also as hope and motivation for us still struggling on the path of perfection.
I also find that the accounts of the modern saints tend to be very thorough, giving extensive details about the saint's personality, dealings with others, virtues, prayer life, etc... This aspect seems to sometimes be missing in the saints of the early centuries (with the exceptions of course of such classic works as Vita Antony and the like).
I have also enjoyed reading from the modern saints in the EO tradition, especially the Russian and Greek saints of the 20th century.
I was hoping to learn more about modern saints in the other OO traditions - Indian, Syrian, Ethiopian, Armenian, etc... - especially from the 19th and 20th centuries. Also, if you can point me to English texts on their lives, virtues and miracles, that would be great.
