St. Juliana of Curnae lived circa the year 305. She became a Christian even though her father and suitor hated Christians. Her father abused her to try to get her to renounce the Christian faith, and her suitor threw her in jail. However, St. Juliana persevered in her faith. She died a martyr – burned, boiled in oil and finally beheaded. She is the patron saint of bodily ills and sickness.
