St. Christina

St. Christina lived in the third century. It’s likely that she was a member of the Roman Anicii family, a pagan family. St. Christina became a Christian as a child and got rid of her father’s idols. Circa 250, her father tried to drown her because of her new faith. When she survived that, she suffered many other punishments, including being shot full of arrows. St. Christina, a martyr, is patron saint of archers.
