SAINT OF THE DAY
St. Zoe of Rome
Saint Zoe of Rome (d. 286) was a noblewoman married to a Roman court official during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. For six years she was unable to speak; when she met St. Sebastian she fell at his feet so that he would heal her. St. Sebastian made the Sign of the Cross over her, and from that moment she was miraculously able to speak. As she was being healed she had a vision of an angel standing next to St. Sebastian holding a book in which everything that St. Sebastian preached was written. Her first words were of thanks and praise to God, and many witnesses were brought to faith in Christ. Zoe and her husband then received baptism at the hands of St. Polycarp, along with many others who had come to believe in Christ through St. Sebastian's miracles. Of this new group of Christians, St. Zoe was the first to be martyred for her faith. Greatly devoted to St. Peter the Apostle, she was attested while praying at his tomb. They martyred her by hanging her from a tree by her hair, with a fire lit under her feet. After her death, her body was thrown into the Tiber River. She appeared to St. Sebastian, who was in prison awaiting his execution, and told him about her martyrdom. St. Zoe of Rome's feast day is July 5.
