St Doumit

St Doumit is a very popular Maronite Saint and the patron of a number of Maronite Churches, monasteries and villages. His devotion is widespread in Lebanon.

We don’t know a lot about this saint and there are various accounts. It is believed he lived in the fourth century. He was a pagan under the emperor and had been responsible for persecuting Christians.

St Doumit was then afflicted with arthritis. As a result he was converted from Arianism and became a hermit. He cured many who were suffering.

Today we ask St Doumit to intercede for all those who live and are suffering with dehabilitating physical and spiritual illnesses.

Amen
