The true story of St. Petronille remains a mystery, but her devotion to our Lord is unquestioned!
St. Petronille, a renowned beauty, was originally thought to be St. Peter's daughter, but history has determined that she was likely his spiritual daughter and that he cured her of palsy. She gave her life rather than marry a pagan king named Flaccus. Her connection to St. Peter is so strong that she, like St. Peter, has for her symbol a set of keys.
St. Petronille's feast day is May 31, and she is the patroness of mountain climbers, hospitality, dauphins, and against fever.
