Domina (or Domnia), Saint

Domina (or Domnia), Saint was of a noble family of Antioch. Having become a widow, she professed Christianity with her two daughters; Bernice and Prosdoae, and on the outbreak of the persecution by Diocletian, the three retired to Edessa. They were seized and ordered to Antioch; but on reaching a river near Hierapolis, they took each other by the hand, precipitated themselves into the water, and were drowned. Their bodies were taken from the river and brought to Antioch, where Chrysostom testifies that they were in his time. They are commemorated April 14.
