St. Faith

St. Faith (also known as St. Faith of Conques) was a French virgin and martyr of the third century AD. According to legend St. Faith was persecuted as a young woman, and died for her faith during the reign of the Roman emperor Diocletian. She refused to make pagan sacrifices despite being tortured and burned to death with a gridiron or brazier. Her attributes are a gridiron, rods and a sword. These often appear in stained glass art showing St. Faith. Her feast day is October 6th and she is the patron saint of pilgrims, prisoners and soldiers.
