History of the Saint:

From a wealthy Roman family, Tatiana renounced marriage and devoted herself to spiritual way of life at an early age. She performed duties of a deaconess at the Roman church, caring for the sick, visiting the confined, helping the impoverished and earning tirelessly God's mercy through prayer.

In about 225 A.D., she confessed to the new Roman emperor, Severus Alexander, of her love for Christ and was tormented.

To amuse the public, she was thrown into the ring of the Coliseum with a hungry lion, who, instead of attacking her, began caressing. The eight servants were then ordered to slay Tatiana with swords. But seeing God's power over her, they turned into believers in Christ themselves, and were mercilessly slain by the emperor's mayor.
