Saint Dorothy is a 3rd century Christian martyr, venerated primarily in the Catholic tradition. Born in Caesarea in Palestine, she devoted her life to the Christian faith. According to legend, she refused to sacrifice to the pagan gods, resulting in her being persecuted and ultimately sentenced to death. Its fame is also based on a legend associated with miraculous flowers. According to tradition, Dorothy sent flowers from paradise to a young man converted to Christianity before her martyrdom. She is often depicted with flowers and is honored as the patroness of gardeners. His feast day is celebrated on February 6 in the Catholic liturgical calendar.
