Saints in Heaven with the Blessed Trinity

St. Praxedes – Virgin

St. Praxedes was a sister of St. Pudentiana, whose feast is celebrated on May 19th. She was the daughter of the Roman Senator Pudens, and after consecrating her virginity to God, she gave up all her wealth to the poor.
Pope Paschal I transferred the bodies of many saints from the catacombs and placed their relics in the Church of St. Praxedes; and inscription states that 2, 300 bodies of saints repose in the crypt under the apse of the Church.
