Saint Julia Corsica, also known as Saint Julia of Carthage, was born in Carthage to a noble family. In 616, the city was conquered by the Vandals and she was captured and sold as a slave to the pagan merchant, Eusebius. St. Julia’s beauty, her faithfulness, and abilities as a hard worker proved her worth to her master. In 620, while traveling to France, Eusebius stopped at a pagan festival. The Governor tried to make Julia sacrifice to their gods but she refused. He even offered to buy her from Eusebius. "No,” Eusebius replied, "All you own will not buy her. I would willingly lose the most valuable thing in the world rather than lose her.” So while Eusebius slept, the governor kidnapped, tortured and crucified Julia. Her relics are in Brescia, Italy at a Benedictine Abby.
