St. Margaret of Antioch (c. 289 – c. 304), also known as St. Marina, was a martyr who lived during the 3rd century in what is now modern-day Turkey. She was born to pagan parents but converted to Christianity, dedicating her life to Christ. Margaret’s unwavering faith attracted attention and she was subjected to persecution for her refusal to renounce her Christian beliefs. She was tortured and imprisoned, but according to tradition, she miraculously survived various attempts on her life. Margaret is most famously associated with the story of her encounter with a dragon, which she is said to have subdued with the power of the cross. St. Margaret is venerated as the patron saint of childbirth, pregnant women, and those suffering from infertility. Her feast day is celebrated on July 20th, and she is remembered for her faith, courage, and triumph over adversity.
