August 3: St. Lydia

History

Saint Lydia was one of the first people who heard Saint Paul preach and believed what he said about Jesus. She became a Christian with her whole household and all were baptized. Then, Paul stayed with her for a while. She is called “Lydia Purpuraria”, which means “Lydia who sells purple cloth”, so she must have had a home business in weaving and dying cloth.

Activity

Today, weave some purple cloth of your own. All you need is some cardboard, yarn and a plastic needle big enough to feed the yarn through. Followthese instructions.

Saint Lydia, pray for us!
