St. Dorothy

About Saint Dorothy

Dorothy is a saint who lived during the 2nd century in Caesarea, Cappadocia.  Saint Dorothy was a young virgin who was imprisoned for her Christianity during the Diocletian persecutions.  While she was in prison, two pagan women were sent to convert her to paganism but Saint Dorothy succeeded in converting the two women to Christianity instead.

Governor Sentences Saint Dorothy

Governor Fabricius was furious when he found out that Saint Dorothy had converted the pagan women.  He sentenced her to be beheaded.  As Saint Dorothy was walking to her execution, a lawyer by the name of Theophilus began harassing her.  He told Saint Dorothy to send him back flowers and fruit from the Paradise she was dying for.

Saint Dorothy’s Miracle

When Saint Dorothy knelt down in front of her executioner, she prayed and an angel appeared to her with a basket full of golden apples and roses.  Saint Dorothy put three of the apples and three roses into a napkin and asked the angel child to bring them to Theophilius, telling him that she would meet him in Paradise.  Theophilius was instantly converted to Christianity and became a martyr himself.

Saint Dorothy Remembered

Saint Dorothy is remembered today especially when Christian couples prepare to be married.  Many Catholics give a Saint Dorothy medal or a Saint Dorothy necklace to newlyweds, praying for her intercession for the grace of a happy marriage in union with Jesus Christ.

Even the flowers for the wedding remind Christians of Saint Dorothy as she delivered her persecutors roses while being executed.  A Saint Dorothy pendant is an ideal way to strengthen the faith of the newly wedded couple for a holy, loving marriage.
