Tribute to a New Martyr

Our Holy Father Philoumenos of the Brotherhood of the Holy Sepulchre

written by: Sofia Kioroglou


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 martyred death, tortured and massacred

You have inherited the Earth and reigned in the heavens

Amongst the elders offering incense before the throne of the Lamb
