July 24 - Saint Christine of Tyre - Virgin - Martyr - 0287 - Tyre Bolsena Italy cybrotius
Born to a wealthy pagan family. Converted as a youth, she destroyed all the idols in her father‘s house; those of gold and silver she broke up and gave to the poor. Scourged, tortured, and martyred for her new faith.
