Saint Photine is Equal-to-the-Apostles because she brought so many people to Christ the Messiah, and preached Him for the rest of her life.
The woman then left her waterpot, went her way into the city, and said to the men, “Come, see a Man who told me all things that I ever did. Could this be the Christ?” Then they went out of the city and came to Him. (John 4: 28-30)
In the Icon below you can see Saint Photine returning to Christ with the Samaritan people.
Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work. Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! (John 4: 34-36)
