Book of Saints – Lucina


(Saint) Matron (June 30) (1st century) According to modern writers, there were three Saints of this name. All three were Roman ladies who devoted themselves to the ministering to the Saints in prison and to the burying of their bodies after martyrdom. The first and most celebrated of the three, who is especially honoured on June 30, rendered these good offices to Saints Processuus and Martinianus and other Martyrs of Apostolic times. The second ministered similarly during the Decian persecution (A.D. 250). The third, in the time of Diocletian, fifty years later, rescued and interred the bodies of Saint Sebastian and of other victims of the persecuting Emperor’s implacable hatred of Christianity.
