The Samaritan Woman

The Samaritan Woman

In the Orthodox Churches of the East, the Samaritan Woman, traditionally known as Saint Photini, is commemorated on February 26.

A brief hagiography may be found at the website of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese in Australia.

Collect

Almighty God, whose dear Son Jesus Christ conversed with the Samaritan Woman at the well of Jacob and gave her to drink of the living water of everlasting life: Grant us so to drink of this living water, that we may in this life be faithful in proclaiming him who is the Messiah, and in the life to come gain everlasting life and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
