Synaxarion for Memorials without a Proper Office
Nouhra is particularly venerated in the churches of the East. He is believed
to be the same person as the martyr called Lucien, who came from
the city of Manhur in Persia. He traveled preaching the gospel and he suffered
martyrdom at Batroun in Lebanon. His name means "Light" and for
this reason he is the special patron of those who suffer from diseases
of the eyes.
May his prayers be with us. Amen.
