St. Mina, who is called the blessed faithful, was martyred on the 15th of Hatour. His father, Eudoxius, was a native of the city of Nakiyos (Nikiu) and was its Governor.

In a short period of time, she attracts the city with her preaching and leads its people to the Savior of the world.

The question is, why a Samaritan?
