Saint Symphorosa of Tivoli, wife of the Martyr, Saint Getulus, was the mother of seven sons to whom she taught The Faith. Arrested at Tivoli, by order of The Emperor Adrian, she was hung up by the hair and then thrown into The River Teverone, with a stone tied to her neck.
All her children, stretched on stakes by means of pulleys, imitated her constancy and were Martyred about 125 A.D.
Mass: Clamavérunt justi.
