The Holy Martyrs Vasilissa and Anastasia
(April 15)

Two devout Roman women, they gathered the bodies of the apos-tles' disciples for burial during Nero's persecutions. They were arrested for this and imprisoned and, after prolonged torture in which their breasts were cut off and their tongues cut out, they were beheaded.
