Memorial

Profile

Born to the nobility. A pious child, her prayers caused her the conversion of her father who had lived a dissolute life. After his death, she stayed with her mother Sedulia, and worked for the spiritual growth of her brother Eutropius, who became bishop of Troyes, France. She devoted most of her time to prayer and charity, and fasted every Wednesday and Friday. She made altar vestments, tabernacle candles, and anything else that could help at Mass. Reported to have worked miracles, but insisted that the those she helped keep it to themselves so as not to draw attention to her. Friend of Saint Prudentius of Troyes, who wrote a biography of her.
