Saint Theognia of Mineo

Memorial

Profile

Daughter of Saint Euprexia of Mineo. She became paralyzed under unknown circumstances.

The relics of Saint Agrappina were brought from Rome, Italy to a cave near the home of Saint Euprexia where exposure to them cured Saint Theognia of her paralysis. In gratitude, Euprexia built a chapel in her home for the relics and had them enshrined there. By the year 312, the church of Saint Agrippina was built on the site of the house.
