(Saint) Penitent. (September 11) (5th century) An Egyptian woman of Alexandria, who, repenting of a sin committed in her youth, lived a long life of austere penance. Many legends exist concerning her; but nothing is now really known either as to the nature of her fault or as to the punishment she inflicted upon herself in reparation of it.
