[Saint Justina of Padua]Memorial

Profile

Young woman who took private vows of chastity and devotion to God. Martyr in the persecutions of Diocletian. Some mideaval documents describe her as a disciple of Saint Peter the Apostle, but that’s impossible. She is sometimes depicted in art as a nun, but never was, and some artists may have confused her with Saint Scholastica.
