St. Anastasia

St.-AnastasiaA.D. 304, December 25, was a Roman lady, although she ranks among the Greek saints. Being persecuted by her own family for professing Christianity, she was comforted and sustained in all her trials by Saint Chrysogonus. After steadfastly enduring much suffering, she was burnt to death, and he was beheaded and his body thrown into the sea.
