St. Restituta of Sora


Commemorated on May 27

St. Restituta was a Roman noble maiden who fled to Sora, Campania, Italy with the aid of an angel to escape the persecution of the Church by Emperor Aurelian. In Sora, she healed a boy who suffered from leprosy. Upon seeing this miracle, almost forty individuals became Christians.

For believing in Christ, St. Restituta was arrested, tortured and thrown into prison in the year 271. She was rescued by an angel, but was eventually found and was beheaded, along with three others.
