Saint Emerentiana

Martyr. 

Emerentiana, a Roman Martyr of unknown date, is reputed by some to have been the foster-sister of Saint Agnes, and whilst still a catechumen to have upbraided the idolators who were attacking the Christians. Whereupon she was stoned to death whilst praying at the tomb of holy Agnes, and thereby baptized in her own blood, so generously shed for Christ.

Collect

GRANT, O Lord, that, like as blessed Emerentiana, thy Virgin and Martyr: by the merits of her chastity and godliness of conversation did ever walk acceptably in thy sight; so she may at all times effectually intercede for our forgiveness. Through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with thee and the Holy Ghost liveth and reigneth ever one God, world without end. Amen.
