Saint Martina was a Roman virgin martyr. She came from a prosperous family yet gave her wealth away to the poor and devoted her life to prayer. After refusing to sacrifice to idols, she was tortured and beheaded. Legend has it that after she was decapitated, she bled milk instead of blood thus the reason she is the patron of nursing mothers. Martina’s relics were found in 1634 at an ancient basilica in Rome.
