St. Marcella
« on: February 04, 2005, 06:14:41 PM »
I was reading my "Prayers for Purity" Prayer book and in the back it tells of a Saint named Marcella. Can someone tell me more of this holy woman, I cant find any resources online about her, they are all the Catholic St. Marcella....

In XC,
Justinian

I've never been able to find the date for a feast for Venerable Martyr Markella (+300).  I can find it on Latin calendars, but not Orthodox.  Is there a reason for this?
