Saint Juliana Of nicOmedia

Saint Juliana Of nicOmedia
Saint Juliana, patron of the sick, was the daughter of a pagan named Africanus.
He promised Juliana to a young noble named Evilase. The girl did not want him for a spouse ; thus, she insisted that he first becomes chief magistrate of Nicomedia before they would marry.

When he became prefect, she again insisted that he be converted to Christianity. Evilase did not agree. Juliana’s pagan father tortured her to change her mind but she remained firm to the Catholic faith.

Evilase brought the woman before the tribunal during the persecution of Maximianus. He denounced her a Christian. Thus, Juliana was burned and boiled in oil before finally beheading her in 305 A.D.
Her relics are found at Cumae, Naples in Italy.
