St. Candida

4th c. Virgin of Carthage. Martyred in the persecutions of Emperor Maximian. One of many St. Candidas.

There are many saints of which there is very little known about their lives other than a few facts of their martyrdom or piety. And yet as saints one of the sure things they can show us is that their apparent insignificance here on earth compares as nothing to their reward in heaven.
