St. Sabina Comments

St. Sabina's feast day is August 29th. We know St. Sabina only through legend, and there is some question as to its trustworthiness. Even the century in which she lived is unknown. Supposedly Sabina was converted to Christianity by her Syrian servant Serapia. During the persecution of Emperor Hadrian, Serapia suffered martyrdom for her Christian Faith.

    Per New Advent:

    St. Sabina

    Widow of Valentinus and daughter of Herod Metallarius, suffered martyrdom about 126. According to the Acts of the martyrdom, which however have no historic value, she lived at Rome and was converted to Christianity by her female slave Serapia. Serapia was put to death for her faith and later, in the same year, Sabina suffered martyrdom. In 430 her relics were brought to the Aventine, where a basilica, which is very interesting in the history of art, is called after St. Sabina. Originally the church was dedicated to both saints. The feast of St. Sabina is celebrated on 29 August.

    In Sri Lanka during the reign of Dutch in 18th century Some Christians living in Mannar were killed because they were Christians and they were trying to protect the statue of Our Lady from being destroyed. This statue was found after so many years from inside a tree which is a common species in Mannar and even now being venerated at Madhu Shrine which is visited by all religious faiths during annual festivals of Our Lady.

    My point is that these martyrs are not pronounced as saints though a church was built in the place where they were killed. My question is how could Sabina was declared a saint when her real history is not known and whether sh had performed any miracles to be elevated to the Saint hood.

    the word "its" doesn't take an apostrophe when it is a possessive modifier, therefore, "its trustworthiness" is the correct spelling. you use the apostrophe when you are contracting "it" and "is" as in "it's great to learn about saint sabina." big difference.

    Thanks for the info on St. Sabina. May I suggest that instead of the word "Supposedly," you use the words, "According to local traditions," or something like that? "Supposedly" sounds like you feel someone might be trying to pull one over on you, and that is not what you want to say.
