Life of the Saint: Svetlana (in Greek "Photina" or "Photinia" meaning "light") was the Samaritan woman who had the rare fortune to converse with the Lord Christ Himself at the Well of Jacob, near Sychar. Believing in the Lord, Photina afterward went to preach His Gospel with her two sons and five sisters. Later on they were arrested, taken to Rome and thrown into prison during the reign of Emperor Nero. By God's providence, Domina, the daughter of Nero, came into contact with St. Photina, who converted her to the Christian Faith. After imprisonment they all suffered for the sake of Christ. Photina, who was first enlightened with the light of truth at the well of Sychar, was thrown into a well where she died and entered the Eternal Kingdom of Christ.
