Friend,

I am a great devotee of St. Moses, I am glad you are interested in his life.  I will help as much as I can as I want to spread devotion to him.

1) Does the information have to be in English only?  His life is available on-lin in Slovak if you understand that language.

2) I can send you his life copied from the Kiev Caves Paterikon, please contact me privately if you want that.

I will look for it in English online too.

If you are interested in the service that is available also.

He is also called S. Moses Uhrin/Uhryn/Ugrin and "of the Carpathians."

His life in Slovak language:

from:

enter July 26

"THE VENERABLE MOSES OF URGIN

He was at the court of the young Russian Prince Boris. When the godless Svyatopolk murdered Boris, Moses escaped and fled to Kiev. A little later he was taken to Poland as a slave by the Polish King Boleslav and there was sold for a thousand gold coins to a young and depraved widow, the wife of one of Boleslav's commanders who was slain. This wicked woman tempted Moses to commit adultery but Moses would not be tempted for he vowed to live chastely before the Lord. She then suggested marriage to him but he rejected that also. Moses secretly received the monastic tonsure from an Athonite monk and he appeared before the lady in the monastic habit. She bound him, ordered that he be flogged and to have his private organ severed. This unsuccessful seduction by this shameful woman lasted for five years - five years of pain and torture! However, King Boleslav was slain unexpectedly in an uprising during which this woman was also killed. Then Moses was free to go to Kiev where, at the monastery of St. Anthony, he devoted his life to prayer and silence. Completely conquering the shameful vice in himself, Moses assisted many to also be saved from it. His holy relics helped many (St. John, the much suffering July 8). After ten years of silence in the Monastery of the Caves, St. Moses found rest on July 26, 1043 A.D. and took up habitation in the eternal virginal Kingdom of Christ. "

The full liturgical service and akathis are available from:

He is called of Hungary/Hungarian/Uhrin/Uhryn/Ugrin because he was from the then Kingdom of Hungary.  The consensus is that he was an ethnic Slav.  His body is in the monastery of the Caves in Kiev and is myrrh-gushing.

Holy Father Moses, pray to God for us!

Tony, I would like to thank you so much for the information that you have provided me. :-*  He is a wonderful saint to learn about especially in the sexual age that we are in. I do not speak Slovak, I can only speak English and French.  Is the Kiev Caves Paterikon available anywhere in English? I see that the akathist and liturgy are available at that you link you have posted.  However they don't have the Synaxarion volume for July, the month he is commemorated.  Is the akathist posted anywhere online?  Thank you again for your help and God bless you.
