Saint Sarah and her two sons

Claim to fame:

She fled her city to baptise her sons, but a prominent storm arose while on the ship. As Sarah was afraid her sons would drown without receiving baptism, she performed the sacrament herself. After doing so, a great calm came upon the waters and the saints arrived in Alexandria. Pope Peter tried baptising her sons three times, but the water froze every time.


“It is indeed one baptism” – Pope Peter

Fun fact:

He husband’s name was Socrates, one of the governors of Emperor Diocletian
