Saint Margaret PDF Print E-mail

Born in Antioch of Pisidia in a wealthy pagan family, very probably she embraced the Christian faith through the good example of her nanny and decided to lead a celibate life offering her virginity to God. Disowned by her father and denounced as a Christian by Olybrius whose offer to have her as his wife she declined firmly, Margaret was beheaded during the persecution of Diocletian. She is commemorated on July 17.
