Martyr Aquilina of Lycia

Saint Aquilina was converted by Saint Christopher, and suffered for Christ with Saint Callinike.

When Saint Christopher was brought before the emperor, the emperor tried to make him renounce Christ, not by force but by cunning. He summoned two profligate women, Callinike and Aquilina, and commanded them to persuade Christopher to deny Christ, and to offer sacrifice to idols. Instead, the women were converted to Christ by Saint Christopher. When they returned to the emperor, they declared themselves to be Christians. Therefore, they were subjected to fierce beatings, and so they received the crown of martyrdom.
