Virgin and Martyr
Born in Sicily, she consecrated her virginity to God. She was gorgeous; Her praetor fell in love with her and, irritated by her refusal, subjected her to terrible torments: among others, having her breasts cut off. She is a helper against breast diseases, and against fires and storms.
God chose the weakness of a maiden to defeat the power of the barbarian praetor.
Marriage is indissoluble; but much more excellent is holy virginity, which does not imply mutilation of the body, but dominion over carnal passion, for the love of supernatural goods.
