February 9 – Saint Apollonia
Apollonia was a young Egyptian Christian of the 3rd century. She had lived her entire life serving God and when she was older, she risked her life by tending to the Christians persecuted by the emperor. At the end, she was also arrested and was burned to death.
What risks would you be willing to take for others? What needs are there today in your surroundings that you would be able to tend to? Would you have to make any sacrifices?
