Tribute to a New Martyr – Our Holy Father Philoumenos of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre

Martyred at Jacob’s Well, 16/29 November, 1979

Dispeller of the powers of evil
You vanquished the serpent
Well done thou good and faithful servant
Because you have been faithful over little things

At the hands of your extremist assailants,
You suffered a martyric death, tortured and massacred
You have inherited the Earth and reigned in the heavens
Amongst the elders offering incense before the throne of the LambWall_painting_of_Saint_Philoumenos_of_Jacobs_Well_Church_in_Palestine
