From the Menaion - 24 January


On 24 January, we commemorate our venerable Mother Xenia and her two servants.

Xenia lived as an exile in this world, for she renounced this passing life. Equal are the honors due to her two companions after their deaths, who were not strangers to her virtues. On the twenty-fourth, Xenia, that torch of prayer, was able to find a hospitable homeland in Heaven.

By their prayers, of our God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
