Profile

When Seraphia was very young, her family fled from Syria to Italy to escape the persecutions of Hadrian. Orphaned as a young woman, she had many offers of marriage, but was drawn to a religious life; she sold all her possessions, gave the money to the poor, and then sold herself into slavery. By her good example, she converted her owner, Saint Sabina. Martyr.
