Natalia was the wife of martyr Saint Adrian. One day, Adrian saw some Christians who were ready to die for their faith and he was very amazed with at their courage that he publicly confessed his faith. Then he was instantly arrested and imprisoned. Natalia went to the jail to support him and died after several days of tortures, just a few days after her husband’s death. The feast day of Saint Natalia and Adria is celebrated 26 August.
