Commemoration of the memory of Blessed St. Xenia of Petersburg

Today, on January 24/February 6, the Russian Orthodox Church and our Parish in Ottawa commemorates the memory of Blessed St. Xenia of Petersburg, our miracle-working Patron who continues to watch over us.

Troparion to Saint Xenia, in the Fourth Tone

Having renounced the vanity of the earthly world, / Thou didst take up the cross of a homeless life of wandering; / Thou didst not fear grief, privation, nor the mockery of men, / And didst know the love of Christ. / Now taking sweet delight of this love in heaven, / O Xenia, the blessed and divinely wise, // Pray for the salvation of our souls.
