Saint Job was born in a.d. 1551 in the region of Pokutya, which was in Poland at that time.   He desired and entered the monastery at just ten years old.  Within two years he was tonsured as a monk in Ugornitsky Monastery, receiving the name Job.  In a.d. 1581 he was moved to Dubensky Holy Cross Monastery under pressure from Prince Constantine, and was soon afterwards elected abbot.  Saint Job stood firmly against the false Union of Brest of a.d. 1596, encouraging his monks not to give in to the Jesuits trying to get them to submit to Roman Papal authority and teaching.

Saint Job left his monastery secretly and went to Pochaev Lavra in a.d. 1604.  There he was also elected abbot.  He spent much time in public ministry and writing, clearly explaining the Orthodoxy Christian Faith and how it differed from Roman Catholicism and its Western deviations from Orthodoxy.   Saint Job, however, loved to often withdraw from the world, living at times in a small cave near woods at the Pochaev Mountain, steeped in solitude and silence.  He practiced continuously the Jesus Prayer.    Saint Job died peacefully in the Lord at age 100 in a.d. 1651.
