Saint John of Tobolsk

St John Maximovitch (1651-1715) was Metropolitan of Tobolsk and all Siberia. His veneration among the people grew after his repose to the point that he was canonized by the Russian Church in 1916, becoming the last canonized saint of the pre-Revolutionary period. He is best known today as the namesake and ancestor of the great 20th-century saint of the Russian diaspora, St John of Shanghai and San Francisco.
