St. Christina Comments

St. Christina was the daughter of a rich and powerful magistrate named Urbain. Her father, who was deep in the practices of heathenism, had a number of golden idols, which our saint destroyed, and distributed the pieces among the poor. Infuriated by this act, Urbain became the persecutor of his daughter. He had her whipped with rods and then thrown into a dungeon. Christina remained unshaken in her faith. Her tormentor then had her body torn by ... Continue Reading

    I was preparing the office of Vespers for today and noted that there was a commemoration of St. Christina but no other information. I found the details of her life on your website. I was moved to tears on reading the appalling cruelty and sufferings of St. Christina. What dreadful, diverse and prolonged torture she endured before she finally died. What an example of faith and fortitude in her love for Christ. She deserves to be remembered and honoured together with all those holy martyrs who endured such unspeakable cruelty while shedding their blood for their beloved Lord. St. Christina, Ora pro nobis.

    Well, obviously I have confirmation, and I am researching up on my saint, but I don't understand something. Did you know that St. Christina THE ASTONISHING's feast day is July 24, whilst St. Christina of Bolesia has the same feast day. (which the saint being talked in this article) How can that be? Also, I don't know which Christina to choose that both same like interesting and incredible pious people. I hope I will make a wise choice.

    I chose Saint Christina as my Saint name for Confirmation but I need to know more information about her for my project. For example : where she was born, when she died, how old she was and stuff like that. Also, Is this Saint Christina the Astonishing or Saint Christina of Persia. If anyone finds information please tell me the website thanks

    I am going to continue researching her. I wish they had more information on St. Christina. Their are many St. Christina's or faithfuls who are risking their lives to defend and practice their Catholic faith. She is definitely a great rolemodel for all Christians to live and defend the truth freely despite of the conflicts or persicutions. It takes a lot of grace to do what she did. I am mezmorized by all of the miracles that God did for her- protecting her from the fire for 5 days! Talk about being renovated in the fire. Very cool...
