Saints for August 1

Saints Sophia, Faith, Hope, and Charity

Saint Faith, Hope, and Charity were martyred together when Saint Faith was 12, Saint Hope was 10, and when Saint Charity was only 9 years old in the persecutions of Hadrian.
Their mother, Saint Sophia peacefully died three days later after her daughters did, when praying in the their tomb.


Dear God, You gave Saint Faith, Hope, and Charity the courage and the faith to believe in You when in difficult times. Through the intercession of these three saints, grant that we may also be given the courage and faith to believe in You as Your three saints did. Also, through the intercession of Saint Sophia, the mother of these three martyrs, grant that we may be given the grace to keep hope along with love in our hearts when we have lost someone or something much loved. We praise You almighty Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
