The holy martyr Charitina of Amisus (also known as Charitina of Rome) was born during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian (284-305) and martyred in the year 304. Her feast is celebrated October 5.


The holy martyr Charitina of Rome was orphaned in childhood and raised like a daughter by the pious Christian Claudius. The young woman was very pretty, very sensible, kind and fervent in faith. She imparted to other people her love for Christ, and she converted many to the way of salvation.

During a time of persecution under the emperor Diocletian (284-305), St Charitina was subjected to horrible torments for her strong confession of the Lord Jesus Christ, and she died in the year 304.
