  • St. Petronille
    Little is known about the virgin St. Petronille. She is said to be the spiritual daughter of St. Peter, who cured her of palsy. She either died in bed after a three day fast in her refusal to marry a Count Flaccus, or she was persecuted and killed for refusing to betray her faith. She is included as a martyr in the 4th century Christian martyrologies.
