Sunday of the Samaritan Woman

Acts 11:19-30
John 4:5-42

Today we look at the woman at the well. She is a Samaritan and therefor not one that should be hanging around with Jews. She also has a past, let’s just say she is not the type of woman that you want your son to bring home. Anyway, Jesus stops to get a drink and the woman is there. They have a conversation and you know the rest of the story.
But, that is not the end of the story for the woman. Tradition holds that she is St. Photini and her feast day is celebrated on February 26. Amazing woman who leads man to Christ and is eventually put to death because of her faith.
