From the Menaion - 26 February


On 26 February, we commemorate our venerable father Porphyrios, bishop of Gaza.

Who would dare to pass over Porphyrios in silence? Especially since he passed over from earth to Heaven! On the twenty-sixth, the earth buried his remains, but time can never bury his fame.

On the same day, we commemorate the holy martyr Photina the Samaritan, to whom Christ had spoken by the well.

They cast into a well that Samaritan woman who had found at the well the fountain of living waters in Christ.

By their holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
