Hoy celebramos la fiesta de las Santas Tais y Pelagia

Las Santas Tais y Pelagia fueron dos mujeres pecadoras que se arrepintieron, encontraron la misericordia de Dios y se volvieron penitentes. Tais fue una meretriz de Alejandria y Pelagia una bailarina de Antioquia.

REDACCION CENTRAL (ACI Prensa) - De acuerdo a la leyenda, Santa Tais era una pecadora publica en Egipto del siglo IV que fue convertida por el Obispo egipcio de la Tebaida Superior, San Pafnucio, llevada a un convento y encerrada en una celda.

Luego de tres anos de penitencia fue liberada y ubicada entre las monjas, pero solo vivio catorce dias mas, muriendo penitente.

Es patrona de Alejandria y se la representa arropada con ricas y coloreadas sedas, con un espejo, simbolo de la coqueteria, y una gargantilla de perlas que representan sus riquezas mal adquiridas.

Por su parte Santa Pelagia era pagana, nacio en el siglo IV, y se convirtio al cristianismo gracias al Obispo de Antioquia.

Basto oirlo para que Dios la moviera a sincera conversion, pidiera el bautismo y cambiara sus danzas, sus mascaras y abalorios por la penitencia.

Una vez bautizada fue a Jerusalen y vivio tres anos en un monasterio del Monte de los Olivos bajo disfraz de hombre y haciendose llamar fray Pelagio. Es patrona de comicos y arrepentidos, y tiene por atributo una mascara teatral.
