Saint Faith, Saint Hope and Saint Charity (120)

These heroic little sisters, aged twelve, ten and nine, were martyred for the Catholic Faith in the early days of the Church. Saint Sophia, their mother, died three days after her little daughters were killed. She died of grief, and they by the shedding of their blood for Jesus. Saint Sophia’s feast is September 30.
