Saint Sophia

Claim to fame: Sophia and her three daughters Faith, Hope and Charity were tortured and martyred after confessing their faith to the Roman Emperor Hadrian when commanded to sacrifice to the goddess Artemis.

Quote: “O Almighty God, do with us according to Your holy will, and forsake us not, but rather grant us Your holy aid, that our hearts be not frightened by the proud tormentor, that we be not terrified by his fearful tortures nor terrorized by bitter death, and that nothing might separate us from You, our God.”

Fun fact: The daughters ages were age 12 (Faith), age 10 (Hope) and age 9 (Charity).
