St Sava II the Archbishop of Serbia

Commemorated on February 8

Saint Sava II of Serbia was the son of King Stephen the First-Crowned, and the nephew of St Sava.

Before becoming a monk, his name was Predislav. In the monastery he devoted himself to the practice of asceticism, just as his uncle had done.

After the repose of St Arsenius (October 28), St Sava II succeeded him as Archbishop. He guided the Church with great love and dedication until he fell asleep in the Lord in the year 1269.
