Nothing certain is known of her, but according to her untrustworthy legend, she was the daughter of a pagan priest at Antioch in Pisidia. Also known as Marina, she was converted to Christianity, whereupon she was driven from home by her father.

    St. Margaret of Antioch. Please pray for my unborn baby. Please pray that the doctors are wrong about it not being a viable pregnancy. I am so scared and I know in my heart that I found you on the eve of your feast day and also the eve of my ultrasound to give me strength. Amen.

    I FIRMLY believe she interceded for my Daughter and me while she was sick in utero(she would die or be on dialysis from birth according to specialist) with Kidney problems and I with a thin uterus prone to rupture . Healthy baby ( doc said pinkest healthiest newborn he'd EVER seen) and not a SINGLE problem with her kidneys. I also had an easy recovery . My daughter bears St. Margaret's name as her middle name in gratitude for her intercession.

    She died believing in what was right for her. She is a good example of the persons who would like to take the same path.

    Why put the information in her bio if you believe it to be false?
