St. Theodosia - April 2
This 17-year-old Lebanese martyr
was in Palestine when she came across a group of Christians awaiting execution for refusing to make pagan sacrifices. Stopping to talk to them, Theodosia was herself captured, tortured, and thrown into the sea for also refusing to make sacrifices. With this unusual and beautiful name meaning "given by God," maybe your own little "Dosia" will grow up with similar courage.
