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.
      The memory of the Monastics Zoa and Photinia is celebrated on the same day together with that of the Monk Martinian.
