The Blessed Maiden Photinia
Commemorated on February 13
The Blessed Maiden
Photinia stayed living on the island, where she spent 6 years in solitude,
and then she gave up her soul to God. Everything about her end was reported by
that same sailor who brought her food, just as he had also previously for the
Monk Martinian. The sailor conveyed the body of Blessed Photinia to Palestinian
Caesarea, where it was solemnly buried by the bishop and clergy.
