{{cleanup}}Saint '''Saint Verena''' of the [[Theban Legion]] departed on the 4th fourth day of [[Coptic Calendar|Thout]] ([[September 14]]). She was brought up in the Theban region (modern day [[Luxor]] in [[Upper Egypt]]) in a noble [[Christian]] family, who handed her over to Bishop Sherimon, [[Bishop ]] of [[Bani Suwayf]], who in turn taught her and [[baptism|baptized ]] her. Saint [[Verena]] joined the [[Theban Legion]] in its mission to [[Rhaetia]] (modern -day [[Switzerland]]) and was a relative of [[Saint Victor]] of the [[Theban Legion]]. The Soldierssoldiers' relatives were allowed to accompany them in order to look after them and take care of their wounds. When [[Saint Maurice]], [[Saint Victor]] and the other members of the [[Theban Legion]] were martyred, Saint Verena led a lonely and [[hermit]] life. First, she settled in a place called [[Solothurn]], but later moved into a cave near present day [[Zurich]]. She used to fast and pray continuously. Moreover, God performed several miracles through her. She was particularly concerned over young girls and used to look after them spiritually and physically, due to her expertise as a [[nurse]]. As a result of her fame, the ruler arrested her and sent her to jail, where [[Saint Maurice]] appeared to her to console and strengthen her. After her release from jail, she moved into several regions, and God made several miracles through her prayers. Due to her, many converted to [[Christianity]]. Saint Verena was interested in serving the poor and used to offer them food. Moreover, she enjoyed serving the sick, especially those suffering from [[leprosy]]. She used to wash their wounds and put ointments on them, not fearing infection. At the time of departure of Saint Verena from our world, the Most Holy [[Mary, the mother of Jesus|Virgin Mary]] appeared to her to console and strengthen her.
