Who's Who: Anastasia

Today's Who's Who:

~Anastasia

(c. early fourth century) Saint and Martyr. Anastasia was probably martyred in Sirmium, and her relics were removed to Constantinople. A much later tradition makes her of noble Roman origin and a spiritual disciple of St John CHRYSOSTOM. Despite the paucity of information about her, Anastasia has been venerated in Rome since the fifth century and she is specifically remembered in the Prayer of Consecration in the Roman Mass.
