St. Anastasia of Rome
Feast Day - October 29th.
In the icon the saint is shown in holding a cross, a sign of martyrdom. Orphaned as a child, she was raised by nuns and grew into a beautiful and pious woman. Brought before the emperor, she was urged to deny her belief in Christ but remained steadfast in her Christian faith. For this, she received martyrdom through torture and beheading. She was buried by the nuns from the monastery, with the help of two Christians.
