St Puma of Egypt
She refused, for the sake of Christ, to marry, and gave herself to asceticism in her mother's house. She took only a little food every other day, and spent her time in prayer and meditation, being gifted with insight. She departed this life peacefully, commending her soul to the Lord, in about the year 377.
