May 23 – Saint Julia of Corsica
Julia was born in South Africa. When she was still very young, she was captured by invaders and sold to a Pagan merchant. She never lost her happiness or her faith. One day, her master decided to take her to a pagan festival on an island. When Julia refused to participate in non-Christian ceremonies, the governor of the area became angry and wanted to buy her. The master refused to sell her. But as he slept, the governor returned to insist that if Julia rejects her faith, she would be freed. When Julia refused the offer, the governor ordered she be hung on a cross until she died.
