Saint Martina of Rome

January 30th III century

She was the daughter of a Roman nobleman and due to her profession of faith, they arrested her and took before the Emperor Alexander Severus. But this Prince was tolerant with the Christians, and his Government marked a period of calm for the Church. The history of the Saint occurred in 1634, 1400 years after her martyrdom. Then, to restore the famous Roman churches, the relics of the martyr were found and proposed devotion to Saint Martina.
