Icon of Ss. Geneviève and Simeon the Stylite at her tomb in Paris
Inscription at the tomb of St. Geneviève in Paris: "Consolation of exiles, you have manifested yourself to the Russian Orthodox emigrees. In all times, at your tomb, they venerate you. O Holy Geneviève, pray for us, Apostle of Unity."

Our venerable mother Geneviève of Paris was a nun originally from Nanterre who lived in France circa 500 A.D. She is considered the patron saint of the city of Paris, together with St. Denis. Her feast day is celebrated on January 3.
