Book of Saints – Gorgonia


(Saint) (December 9) (4th century) A holy woman, sister of Saint Gregory Nazianzen who has left us a Panegyric dwelling upon the eminence in virtue and holiness of his dead sister. Before her death (A.D. 375, about), she saw her husband, children and grandchildren, received into the Church by the Sacrament of Baptism. Her own aged parents seem to have survived her.
