Citation:
Saint Lydia


Childhood and persecution

Lydia was born in Cyprus in Asia Minor, in the middle of the third century after Christos. Daughter of a wealthy family converted to Aristotelianism for nearly a century, she grew up hiding her faith.
Lydia, a convinced Aristotelian, prayed secretly. She had as her teachings only the stories of the apostles of Christos told by her grandmother as she had no books. The written texts were forbidden by her father, who was afraid that soldiers would come and discover them.
At that time, the Emperor Numerian persecuted and tortured the Aristotelians. In a dream he often had in his youth, he had seen an Aristotelian steal his popularity. His hatred was immense: he did not hesitate to burn Aristotelian baptismal medals and once they were red, to stock them on the foreheads of the presupposed Aristotelians before having them killed.

Her Life, Her Death

As an adult, Lydia became a renowned doctor for her community. Although she was in contact with the royal family and the wealthy families of the city, she still practised her religion secretly.
One day, while she was caring for the poor in a building, she had rented for this purpose, she was stopped by soldiers who told her that the Emperor had summoned her to his palace.
The son of Numerian was subject to a high fever for several weeks. No medic of the court had been able to find a cure, so he had resolved to appeal to Lydia, having heard the miracles she had done to the poor.

Three days later, thanks to the care she lavished upon him, the Emperor's son found himself on his feet. Numerian did not believe in miracles and was intrigued by this woman who had succeeded in three days what his medics had not managed to do in several weeks. He, therefore, insisted on keeping her with him for a few more days, officially to thank her by giving her the title of the imperial medic, unofficially to give the proconsul the option to spy on her to find out the secret of her medicine.

One evening, while the proconsul was spying on Lydia, he saw her in prayer and heard her praise Christos and his apostles in a low voice.
When this was revealed to the Emperor, one did not need to wait long for his reaction: furious that an Aristotelian had lodged under his roof and eaten in his cutlery, he had her arrested and executed. It is said that he took the Aristotelian medal found on Lydia and put it to heat and then paste it on her forehead with such force that no one could take it off her body.

The repercussion

Several days after this event, Numerian was taken with the same fever as his son. The medics did not find any solution to lead him on the path of healing, but all could see that day after day a circular mark with a cross in its middle took shape on the forehead of the emperor.
Outside, the situation was different: the poor could not receive free care as Lydia gave them and died by the hundreds. Their corpses piled up in the city, much to the dismay of the tradesmen and the city-dwellers who protested in front of the imperial council and demanded that the emperor provides a voluntary medic to the poor and open a building reserved for them, as had done Lydia.
Numerian, remorseful for having killed the only one who could have healed him and ashamed to see an Aristotelian medal on his forehead, understood from seeing the demands of the people that he was the protagonist of his premonitory nightmare, by murdering Lydia, he made her more popular than himself.
Numerian had the building reopened where Lydia received the poor and installed several medics there, all at no cost. He authorized the practice of Aristotelian worship and had Lydia's remains, as well as several parchments about her life, brought to Rome, where the supreme head of the Church was residing.

It is said that Numerian was cured of his fever and that the mark on his forehead disappeared soon after. It is also known that several miraculous cures took place in the building allocated to the poor.
