The Feast of Saint Moura of Lebanon




Almighty God, by whose grace and power thy holy Martyr St. Moura triumphed over suffering, and despised death: Grant, we beseech thee, that enduring hardness, and waxing valiant in fight, we may with the noble army of martyrs receive the crown of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Saint Moura, pray for us, and for Lebanon.

  1. I feel a little bit ashamed for a few reasons!
    1- I never heard of this Saint and I currently reside in Lebanon
    2- She's born in Egypt (says google) and that's where my dad was born
    3- Her second feast day is on my birthday! :O

    Thanks again for all these nice posts Matthew! I sure am leaning a bit!

    2. Yes indeed and a great idea for a spring road trip is to try to find her dedicated Church here! (I will have to ask some Lebanese Marronite friends ^^)
