St. Lydia PurpurariaFeast day August 3rd Nicole Mathiot
St. Lydia Purpuraria was born in Thyatira in the first century.
She is the patron saint of dyers because of her profession was selling purple dye. Hence her name Purpuraria. Her feast day is August 3rd.
An interesting fact about st. Lydia is that she was Saint Paul's first convert in Philippi.
A prayer in my own words to Saint Lyida would be: Please watch over me and everyone around me and keep watch over other dyers like you that may need your guidance. We ask this through Christ our lord amen.
