It is this character different from John of Kronstadt. He really edified, exhorted, comforted, he warned and predicted the future. Cases of his visionary intervention in the fate of people are as numerous as the amazing healing. Note that all attempts to question, neglect, or laugh at the sagacity of the Kronstadt priest ended in failure for some and instructive for others. Once, during a trip his father John to his homeland one Sursky farmer approached him and said: "Ivan, give 25 rubles, my mare is sick." Kronstadt father silently took the money and gave it. Horse at the villager was healthy, but he wanted to merry. Back at home, terrified farmer discovered that his mare died. Repented peasant, crying in front of the priest, was forgiven. Then he told everyone this event, so that no one dared and dare joke with "Ivan".
