This amazing woman loved her husband so much that after his death, she gave all her possessions to the poor, put on her husband's clothes and went off to wander the streets. Xenia gained the gift of prophecy, denied material wealth, and prayed to the Lord every single day. Most often women come to the chapel to ask for happiness in family life. Girls ask Xenia for a successful marriage and healthy children.

One of the most famous cathedrals of St. Petersburg is named after Our Lady of Kazan. Before the Battle of Poltava, Peter I himself and his army asked this icon for blessings.And in 1812, Russian soldiers together with Kutuzov prayed to the sacred face in order to repel the French attack.

Here lies a relic of the Romanov dynasty - the icon of Our Lady of Tsarskoye Selo. Legend says that Peter the Great blessed his daughter with a sacred image and encouraged her to the throne. During World War II, the icon fell into the hands of the Nazis, but was returned from Riga to Leningrad. Thousands of people from different times asked for protection of the Divine Mother to keep away from the plague, cholera, floods, fires. And nowadays people keep asking her for salvation from various disasters.

The icon of the Mother of God "Joy of All Who Sorrow" is known for the miracles of healing people from serious illnesses. The first miracle that all of Russia spoke of happened in 1890, when the 14-year-old orphan Kolya Grachev, who suffered from seizures, fully recovered. Since then, everyone who has long and in vain fought the disease come to see this icon.
