Saint Zoe of Rome

The 5th of July is the feast day of Saint Zoe of Rome.

Saint Zoe of Rome died in 286 AD and was a noblewoman who was married to a Roman court official. She lived during the reign of Emperor Diocletian. She had a condition that left her unable to speak for six years, however, when she met St Sebastian she fell at his feet begging him to heal her. Saint Sebastian made a sign of the cross over her head and she was miraculously cured. She had a vision during that moment, of an angel holding a book inside of which was inscribed all the preachings of Saint Sebastian. Her first words were those of thanking and praising God. Many witnesses of this miracle brought faith in Christ. Saint Polycarp became to believe in Christ through Saint Sebastian's miracles. She had a great devotion to Saint Peter the Apostle and while she was praying at his tomb, was arrested. They hung her by her hair on a tree and placed a fire under her feet. She died and her body was thrown into the Tiber River. She then appeared in a vision to Saint Sebastian, who was in prison awaiting his execution, to inform him of her martyrdom.

Dear children, sadly, among you, my children, there is so much battle, hatred, personal interests and selfishness. My children, so easily you forget my Son, His words, His love. Faith is being extinguished in many souls, and hearts are being grasped by material things of the world. But my motherly heart knows that there are still those who believe and love, who are seeking how to draw all the closer to my Son, who are tirelessly seeking my Son - then, in this way, they are also seeking me. These are the humble and the meek with their pain and suffering which they carry in silence with their hopes and, above all, with their faith. These are the apostles of my love. My children, apostles of my love, I am teaching you that my Son is not only asking for continuous prayers, but also for works and feelings - that you believe, that you pray, that with your personal prayers you grow in faith, that you grow in love. To love each other is what He asks for - that is the way to eternal life. My children, do not forget that my Son brought the light to this world, and He brought it to those who wanted to see it and receive it. You be those, because this is the light of truth, peace and love. I am leading you in a motherly way to adore my Son; that you love my Son with me; that your thoughts, words and actions may be directed to My Son - that they may be in His name. Then my heart will be fulfilled. Thank you.
