Saint Xenia of St Petersburg with scenes of her blessed life as a Fool-for-Christ. Russian Orthodox Icon. Saint Xenia wandered the streets of late eighteenth century St. Petersburg. She secretly carried bricks to the top of the scaffold at a church construction site in the middle of the freezing night, prayed barefoot in snowy open fields all night long, prayed for the sick and helped many to find marriage partners, jobs and healing. She reposed around 1803.
