Orthodox Remembrance Day: 10 February

Antike original russische Ikone aus dem 19. Jahrhundert.


The holy virgin martyrs Ennatha, Valentina and Paula suffered in 308 under Emperor Maximian II Galerius (305-311). Saint Ennatha came from the city of Gaza (in southern Palestine), Saint Valentina came from Palestinian Caesarea, and Saint Paula came from the Region of Caesarea.


Saint Ennatha was the first to be placed before the governor Firmilian and courageously declared herself a Christian. They beat them, and then they hung them on a pillar and scourged them.


Saint Valentina, accused of not worshipping the gods, was led to a pagan temple to offer sacrifices, but she bravely threw a stone at the victim and turned her back on him. They beat her mercilessly and sentenced her to beheading together with Saint Ennatha.


Finally, Saint Paula was brought, and she was subjected to many torments. With God’s help, however, she endured them with great patience and courage. Before her death, Paula thanked the Lord for strengthening her. She bowed to the Christians present and bent her neck under the sword.
