Holy Martyr St. Agrippina of Rome †256 or 262

St. Agrippina

The Holy Martyr St. Agrippina of Rome is counted in the West as an intercessor for persons with leprosy. A holy virgin, rejecting marriage to a pagan, she confessed the Faith before Emperor Valerian, and was tortured in various ways, and she died from the tortures. Her remains- relics- were taken to Sicily, and were later transferred to Constantinople. Many miracles have taken place at her grave.
