Write your request on a sheet of plain paper. It must be done personally, because you are applying to Xenia the Blessed, even if you ask about the welfare of another person. Write as you feel.
Start the note with a case that is in prayer, like "blessed wanderer Ksenia or Xenia Sellaronda". Then write about what you ask: for healing from illness, the resolution of major life problems, children's health, conception, etc. don't forget to include your name and the names of relatives referred to.
Get ready for a trip to the chapel of Xenia the Blessed St. Petersburg. A few days before a visit to the chapel try to lead a good lifestyle: don't drink alcohol, don't smoke, say your prayers, visit the Church, talk to the priest. Be sure to bring bread and cookies, candy or another treat.
In St. Petersburg go to the Smolensk cemetery on ul. Kamskaya, 24. Exit the metro station "Vasileostrovskaya". Then you can walk or take taxi. Feel free to ask for directions from local residents of St. Petersburg are willing to help you. Near the Central entrance to the cemetery is a temple of the Smolensk icon of the Mother of God. From him to the chapel of Xenia the Blessed has a private footpath.
Go around the building clockwise three times. Your note roll and dip in a special box. It can also be put under a box with candles or at the outside wall of the building. Then attach the front to the wall of the chapel, mentally or aloud whispers, please refer to the Blessed Xenia asking for help. Light and leave it on the street the candle.
Go inside the chapel. Here you can re-contact Xenia prayers or expressing the request of his sincere words. Order a prayer and put candles to the icons.
Don't leave the chapel immediately. This place is special. To leave it you should get any sign. Wait until someone calls you, for example, call relatives on the phone, or while the priest asks those present to go to could go to others who wish to pray. If nothing happens, wait for the end of the chapel.
After leaving the chapel, crumble the birds brought bread and distribute sweets to the poor or leave them at the wall.
