August 29: St. Sabina

History

Saint Sabina was not always a Christian. Her female servant was the one who taught Sabina about Jesus. At the time, the government was fighting against Christianity by killing as many Christians as they could. Sabina’s servant was executed for being a Christian, one of many people who were martyred for Jesus in those times. Sabina had the body buried with her ancestors. That got her in trouble with the government, and Sabina was also executed for being a Christian.

Activity

In some parts of the world even now, Christians are threatened the same way Saint Sabina and her servant were. Today, pray for all of those who are persecuted for their faith, that God will strengthen them no matter what happens.

Saint Sabina, pray for us!
