    St. Tikhon (a.d. 1865-1925) was born in a village near Pskov, Russia. He was very bright and entered the Theological Academy in St. Petersburg when just 19. He was very knowledgeable and was jokingly referred to by his classmates as “the patriarch.” Tonsured a monk at 26, he was then made the Bishop of Liublin, Poland when just 32, but was transferred to America within a year to become the Bishop of the Aleutians and Alaska in 1898. St. Tikhon worked hard for nine years to overcome ethnic and language barriers to make the Faith accessible to all. At that time all of the various ethnic groups, whether Greek, Serbian, Rou-manian, Albanian, Carpatho-Russian, Antiochian, or Russian, were under the omophor of the bishops of the Russian Diocese, who served each according to its needs and in its own language and customs. St. Tikhon also reached out to converts and blessed English translations of the Divine Services and Sacraments. He was called back to Russia in 1907, and elected the Patriarch in 1917 after the fall of the Russian monarchy. Terribly persecuted by the Communists, he remained faithful until he died of exhaustion in a.d. 1925. Sizes are approximate

    St. Nicholas, the chosen of God, was in his own lifetime a great wonder-worker of miracles, and this continues to this day.  He was born in Patara, later entering into the Monastery of New Zion founded by his uncle Nicholas, who was also the bishop of Patara.     He wanted to live a life of solitude and silence, but heard a Heavenly voice calling him, “Nicholas, for your ascetic labor, work among the people if you desire a crown from Me.”  Shortly after this, he was chosen by revelation to be the Bishop of Myra in Lycia of Asia Minor, now in modern day Turkey.

    Generous with his goods and life, fearless before earthly powers in matters of righteousness, zealous for the faith, and truthful, St. Nicholas was a lover of justice, and on two occasions defended three innocent men condemned to death.  He appeared even while alive in dreams and in person to those who called on him in need, and is known to be “quick to help.”  He is the patron of travelers, those at sea, students, and even pawnbrokers.  Loved throughout the world, may he also hear our humble prayers!  St. Nicholas died after a short illness on December 6, 343.

    This blessed Fool-for-Christ lived in the 18th c.  At the age of 26 she was widowed when her husband Andrew, an army officer, died unexpectedly at a drinking party without the sacraments and blessings of the Church.  She was so shaken by this that she  disappeared from St. Petersburg for five years, and it is believed that she spent this time with some ascetic nuns.  When she returned, she gave away all of her goods, even her house, though relatives tried to get her declared insane.   When she spoke to the judge privately she was allowed to do as she wished.

    She put on her husband’s old army jacket and demanded that others call her by his name, saying that she was dead in his place.  St Xenia lived homeless, walking the streets of the city in unceasing prayer.  She acted foolish to avoid attention to  the many prophetic sayings that she gave to help people, and the many good deeds and miracles that she worked through Christ.  She helped build the church in the Smolensk Cemetery by carrying bricks up the scaffold unseen at night.  She is known for helping others build churches, find housing and jobs, and raise children righteously.

    These two Great Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ are depicted here in a brotherly embrace.  Both were transformed from ordinary men to servants of the Most High God, and became living icons of the Lord they worshiped and loved exceedingly.  They are both considered chief among the Apostles, and have a major fasting period that precedes their dual commemoration on June 29th each year.  They are great miracle-workers.

    Simon bar-Jonah was a fisherman who was transformed by Christ when He called him from his earthly fisher’s nets to Heavenly ones, later called Peter for the rock of his confession of Christ as the living Son of God, given to him by revelation.  He led the early Church and preached at Pentecost, converting thousands.  Saul was a Pharisee who led the persecution by the Jews of the early Church.  He was converted by a vision of Christ on the road to Damascus, which blinded him to earthly sight, but gave him Divine wisdom.  He was  healed through St. Ananias’ prayers, who baptized him.  In a.d. 64, the Emperor Nero in Rome condemned St. Peter to death by crucifixion, and St. Paul by beheading.

    St. Nikon was born in Byzantine Pontus Polemoniacus in the tenth century.   As a young man he went to live a very strict ascetic life for twelve years in a monastery called Chrysopetro, or “Golden Stone,” on the borders of Pontus and Paphlagonia.  His abbot sent him out to preach in Anatolia, in Asia Minor.  When Crete was freed of the Arab conquerors by Nikephoros Phocas in a.d. 961, St. Nikon traveled there to return former Christians who had been converted to Islam back to their faith in the Lord Who bought them with His Life.  He began his sermons to them with the word “repent” and this St. Nikon’s epithet has come down to us.

    St. Nikon preached for some time in Epidauros, Athens, Euboea, Thebes, Corinth, and finally spent many years in the Peloponnese, particularly in Sparta, where even today he is known as a patron saint of that city, averting a plague by his prayers.  He ended his course of preaching repentance on the mainland of Greece in Lakonia, but died in a monastery in the Peloponnese, full of years and faith on November 26, 998.   He was, and is still, a great miracle-worker, touching the hearts of many.
