Favourite saints.

RE: Favourite saints.
My favourite saints are St Xenia of St Petersburg and St Mary of Egypt. St Xenia was classified as a holy fool and is revered in the Russian Orthodox church. St Mary of Egypt succumbed to much urban temptation, until she was touched by the power of God. She was 29 years old when she altered her life and went into the desert for the next 47 years where the outer temptations became inner ones, but she workrd this through and became very holy and wise.
