January 31: St. Nikita of the Kiev Caves

First of all, although Nikita ends with an ‘a’, it’s a male name, the Russian version of Nicetas. Hence Nikita Krushchev, St. Nikita the Goth, etc. Several other Russian male names end with ‘a.’

More importantly, this guy’s life presents quite a lesson for those of us who struggle with pride! Never give up too much prayer in favor of ‘study,’ nor ‘bite off more than you can chew’!
