Saints of the Day – Priscilla, Matron

Saint Priscilla of RomeArticle

(also known as Prisca) 1st century (c.98). Saint Priscilla, was the widow of Mancius Aeilius Glabrio, who was executed by Domitian most likely because he was a Christian. She was probably the mother of Saint Pudens, the senator. Tradition has it that she was the Roman hostess to Saint Peter, who used her home on Via Salaria as his headquarters in Rome. The catacomb of Priscilla under her home was named after her (Benedictines, Delaney).
