Monks Spiridon and Nikodim made Prosphora at Pechersk (Kiev Caves) for 30 years. Spiridon came to the monastery during his middle age, and was graced by miracles. He once extinguished his mantle which had caught fire from the oven, and the mantle was not even singed. Nikodim and Spiridon led a very strict life. They rest in the Antoniev Cave.
