Saint Photina (First Century)

It is fitting that on this day should be celebrated the feast of a radiant saint named Photina, which means light. She was the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met at the well of Jacob. She was martyred at Carthage, in Africa, and was thrown into a well. Martyred with her were her two sons, Saint Victor and Saint Joseph.
