June 23 – Saint Agrippina: Patron Saint against Storms
Saint Agrippina, Patron Saint against Storms (Feast Date: June 23)
Extract from Saint Agrippina, martyr: “The Church liturgically commemorates the feast of Saint Agrippina, a Roman martyr who lived at the time of Emperor Valerian (153-259). Not called to be married to a believer or unbeliever but called to fully dedicate her life to Christ, Agrippina confessed in public her faith in Christ as Savior for which she was tortured. After being beatened, tradition says, she was chained by the government yet released by an angel. She died from her torture. Initially, Saint Agrippina was buried in Sicily by three Christian women: Bassa, Paula and Agathonice; her relics were later transfered to Constantinople.” PICTURE of Saint Agripinna.
