== St Photine of Samaria and those with her ==
(John 4:1-42) "Photine" (Svetlana in Russian) was the Samaritan woman who encountered Christ at Jacob's well. She repented after a very gentle and wise conversation with Christ and went and told her townspeople that she had met the Christ. For this, she is sometimes claimed as the first to proclaim the Gospel of Christ.
She converted her five sisters (St Anatole, St Photo, St Photis, St Paraskeve and St Kyriake) and her two sons (St Photinos, formerly known as Victor, and St Joses). They all became tireless evangelists for Christ.
