Bulgaria: Orthodox Church Honours St. Mina

On Friday, the Orthodox Church honours St Mina (285-309 A.D.). He is one of many saints martyred for his faith during the first centuries of Christianity.

St Mina is the patron of everyone who has lost something, of women who pray to him for the health of their household and their children.

St Mina is also a patron of orphans and the homeless.

In folklore tradition, it is believed that today sets the beginning of several days of various superstitions related to avoiding illnesses and evil spirits.

St Mina is believed to be the lord of wolves. This saint’s day marks the middle of the so-called Wolves’ celebrations, which mark the beginning of the “days of the longest nights”.

St Mina is the patron of the family and of travelers, and is believed to help people find their lost possessions.
