Troparion to St. Xenia
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.
