Book of Saints – Pudentiana

Saint Pudentiana of Rome from a 15th century fresco, church of Santa Pudenziana, Narni, ItalyArticle

(Saint) Virgin (May 19) (2nd century) Otherwise called Potentiana. She was the daughter of Saint Pudens, the Senator. Together with her sister, Saint Praxedes, she helped greatly the Church in Rome during the first half of the second century. They buried the bodies of the Martyrs and spent their wealth on the poor. Saint Pudentiana’s church, built, it is believed, on the site of the mansion of Saint Pudens, is one which attracts much attention on account of its association with early Christian history.
