Chapel of Blessed Ksenia : Часовня Ксении Блаженной

Although the monastery (poustinia) is dedicated to the Ikon of Our Lady Joy of All Who Sorrow, we honor and commemorate two saints as our special heavenly patrons: Saint Seraphim of Sarov and Saint Blessed Xenia of Petersburg.

“O holy and blessed Mother Ksenia, chosen favorite and fool for the sake of Christ, who elected to undergo the struggle of patience and the suffering of affliction, we who honor your holy memory offer you hymns of praise. Help us against our enemies, visible and invisible, that we may cry unto you: Rejoice, O blessed Ksenia, who ever intercedes for our souls!”
