Saturday Saints- #78

The letter for today’s post is X. As one might imagine, there aren’t too many saints with that as the first letter in their name. With so little to choose from, that gives us Saint Xenophone of Robeika:

Xenophon of Robeika (Russian: Ксенофонт РобейскийXenofont Robeysky; died June 28, 1262) was a Russian Orthodox monk, later declared a saint. A student of Barlaam of Khutyn, he later became abbot of the Khutyn Monastery. Resigning from this post, he later founded the Trinity Monastery on the Robeika River (ru), close to Novgorod; he died there in 1262.
