    24 July

    Born to a wealthy pagan family. Converted as a youth, she destroyed all the idols in her father's house; those of gold and silver she broke up and gave to the poor. Martyred for her new faith.

    Her story and that of Saint Christina of Tyre seem to have been confused and combined in rewrites through the ages.

    3rd century, probably at Rome into the family Anicii

    martyred c.250 near Lake Bolsena, Tuscany; her father tied a rock around her neck, and threw her into Lake Bolsena; when she miraculously survived, her tongue was cut out, and she was thrown into a furnace; when she survived, she was shot full of arrows on the order of a magistrate persecuting Christians by order of Diocletian; relics at Palermo, Sicily, and Torcelli; head in the cathedral at Milan, Italy
