Saint Blessed Xenia of St. Petersburg
(Ksenia Blazennaya) is a patron saint of St. Petersburg, who according to tradition, give all her possessions to the poor after her husband died. Her husband had been Colonel Andrey Fyodorovich Petrov, a chanter at the Saint Andrew Cathedral.
After his death, Xenia became a "fool-for-Christ" and for 45 years wandered around the streets of St. Petersburg, usually wearing her late husband's military uniform. She was canonized by the Russian Orthodox Church on February 6, 1988.
Her feast day in the O.S. is January 24, which is February 6 in the New Calendar.
