St Agapi

St Agapi and her two sisters St Elpida and St Pisti were daughters of St. Sofia, a Christian woman. They lived in Rome during the reign of emperor Hadrian.

St Sofia and her daughters were arrested for their Christian beliefs and were brought to Hadrian for interrogation. St Agapi was nine years old at the time.

They were all told to deny their Christian faith in order to save themselves. When they each refused to reject Christ, the emperor ordered that the three sisters be killed. St Sofia died while crying over their tombs just a few days later.

For their faith and strong beliefs the Church declared them all saints and they are all celebrated on the same name day.
