Virginmartyr Pelagia of Antioch

Commemorated on October 8

The holy Virgin Martyr Pelagia was a fifteen-year-old girl when she suffered martyrdom in Antioch during the Diocletian persecution.

When soldiers came to her home to seize her, St Pelagia jumped out the window in order to avoid defilement.
