The Holy Martyr Tatiana is a Patron Saint of students. Commemorated: January 12/25
Life of the Saint: Tatiana was born in Rome in 198 AD. She was a Roman whose parents were from the the nobility. She was a Christian and a deaconess in the chuch. After the death of Emperor Heliogabalus, there reigned the Emperor Alexander, whose mother Mammaea was a Christian. Emperor Alexander himself was wavering and indecisive in his faith for he kept statues of Christ, Apollo and Abraham in his palace. His chief assistants took it upon themselves to persecute the Christians without awaiting orders from the emperor. When they brought out the virgin Tatiana for torture, she prayed to God for her torturers. And lo, their eyes were opened and they saw four angels around the martyr. Seeing this, eight of them believed in Christ for which they also were tortured and slain. The tormentors continued to torture St. Tatiana. They whipped her, cut of parts of her body and scraped her with irons. All disfigured and bloody, Tatiana was thrown into the dungeon that evening, so that the next day they could begin anew with different tortures. But God sent His angels to the dungeon to encourage her and to heal her wounds, so that each morning Tatiana appeared before the torturers completely healed. They threw her before a lion, but the lion fawned about her and did no harm. Finally, Tatiana and her father were led out together and both were beheaded. Thus, Tatiana ended her earthly life in about year 225 AD, and this heroic virgin, who had the fragile body of woman but a robust and valiant spirit, was crowned with the immortal wreath of glory. St. Tatiana honored in Eastern Orthodox Church as well as in Roman Catholic Church.
