Historical annecdote : St. Christina of Rome, was the daughter of the Roman governor Urban very attached to the worship of idols. When Christine converted to Christianity her father's anger knew no bounds. Christine was martyred and thrown, a stone around her neck, into Lake Bolsene, but an Angel led her safely to the shore. Finally, attached to a column, she was pierced with arrows.
