St. Fina Comments

St. Fina or Seraphina, Virgin A.D. 1253 The old town of San Geminiano in Tuscany treasures with special veneration the memory of Santa Fina, a young girl whose claim to be recognized as a saint lay in the perfect resignation with which she accepted bodily suffering. She was born of parents who had seen better days but had fallen into poverty. The child was pretty and attractive. Poor as she was she always kept half her food to give to those who ...

    This is just grand how you guys have this website to help us learn about saints. The thing is, my grandma has very poor eyesight and when she wants to learn about a new saint she cant read it so i have to drive an hour and a half to get to her house(I am her closest grandchild). So, i would think it would be a very good idea if you had some type of auto read button so she can listen to it through her speakers. Just think it through. Thank you.

    This story is well told. I cherish this name and will name my daughter Seraphina. I will also invoke St Fina's intercession for my physical pains.

    Found information very interesting. I know an old lady by this name, and she really is a kind, and generous one too. She suffers also from emotional and physical pain, but she is a great woman of faith!

    St. Seraphina please intertcede for this wonderfull lady!

    Love the words, "It is not my wounds but thine, O Christ, that hurt me".
    I doubt there are ppl in this world now who can say that.

    This example of style in faith can truly make one appreciate how little we suffer for our lord. Surely we can all give more and step up our game. God bless all.

    Sometimes, I wonder, if Jesus wanted St Fina to suffer the way she did, because, I did not see any where, that our Christ wished any one to suffer this way, even though, He said that "any one who wants to follow Him, must pick up the cross, and follow." if not so, then why are we encouraged to pray for healing with faith in God? Didn't Jesus heal the sick? He did.
