St Zoe

Commemorated on February 13

Saint Photina remained on the island, where she spent six years in solitude, and then she gave up her soul to God. Everything about her death was reported by that same sailor who brought her food, just as he had done previously for St Martinian. The sailor brought the body of St Photina to Palestinian Caesarea, where it was solemnly buried by the bishop and clergy.

Ss. Zoe and Photina are celebrated on the same day with St Martinian.

Saint Photina deserves to be revered for dedicating six years of her life to God on a lonely island. Her dedication to God is something Christians need to follow today.
