Eudokia discarded her previous life to become a nun. She built a [[monastery]] near the city of Baalbeck and ministered to the many people who came to receive assistance. Because of her beauty, she also had many suitors. One suitor named Philostratos was persistent enough to seek her out in the hope of securing favor before her fortune had been dissipated. Eudokia refused to help him, and, when in his anger he seemed struck dead by the Lord, she prayed to God for his recovery. Brought back to his senses, he was easily converted to Christianity.
The [[conversion ]] of so many to Christianity brought [[Saint]] Eudokia to the attention of the authorities who had her beheaded in 107 AD.
