Saint Leocadia was a humble woman, of those that did not need much to be happy, only required to achieve it from the love of the Almighty.
Feeling that gave her the strength to overcome difficult moments and see in faith the key to freedom that even emancipated her, from the bars of the cell where she suffered martyrdom and from her terrestrial captivity.
Leocadia did not hesitate for a single moment, she did not renounce her God, nor her beliefs.
Perhaps her lack of interest in the material was the aggravating factor that fanned the fire of hatred in the hearts of her executioners, who never forgave her continuous attachment to prayer and the balm that adoration of the redeemer constituted for her.
- The saints of Santa Leocadia are celebrated every December 9.
This day is considered sacred for the Catholic faith, since it is when man honors the will of the saint and puts up the faith that made her find consolation in martyrdom and pain.
