Our Holy Fathers Basil and Theodore of the Kiev Caves.

Commemorated August 11 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

They both died under the tyranny of the covetous Prince Istislav, in 1098. The life of St Theodore is especially instructive to the covetous. Theodore was very rich, but he gave all his wealth to the poor and became a monk. He then repented and grieved for his riches, and was greatly tempted by a spirit of covetousness, from which he was freed by St Basil.
