St. Dorothy of Caesarea holy medal - Catholic saint
Lived in the era of Diocletian, a Roman emperor, who persecuted the Christians. Dorothy made a vow of perpetual virginity and refused to sacrifice to the pagan gods. She was tortured and sentenced to death. "The pagan lawyer Theophilus said to her in mockery, “Bride of Christ, send me some fruits from your bridegroom’s garden.” Before she was executed, she sent him, by a six-year-old boy who is thought to have been an angel, her headress which had the fragrance of roses and fruits. Seeing this gift, and the miraculous messenger who brought them, Theophilus converted, and was martyred himself. This story has been variously enlarged through the years." from: CatholicSaints.Info » Blog Archive » Saint Dorothy of Caesarea
