St. Marcellina

St. Marcellina was born in Gaul (what would now be Germany) circa 330. She is the sister of St. Ambrose of Milan and St. Satyrus. She moved to Rome as a young child and was raised by her older brothers. St. Marcellina became a consecrated virgin, and Pope Liberius gave her the veil on Christmas in 353. After her brother, St. Ambrose, became a bishop, she worked with him. She lived a very austere life and died in 398.
