Faith, twelve, was scourged, and boiling pitch was poured on her but she remained unharmed. She was subsequently beheaded.
Hope, ten and Charity , nine, were also heheaded after emerging unscathed from a furnace. Wisdom, their mother, died three days later while praying at their graves.

Saint Plegmund
Archbishop of Canterbury
Plegemund was born in Mercia England, and was a hermit near Cheshire. According to Our Sunday Visitor Encyclopedia Of Saints, Plegemund was the tutor of King Alfred the Great, and at the request of Alfred, Pope Stephen V or IV, appointed him archebishop of Canterbury.
According to Dictionary of Saints by John J. Delaney, however, Plegemund became a member of King Arthur’s court and at Arthur’s request was named Archbishop of Canterbury in 890 and consecrated in Rome by Pope Formosus. In 908, Plegemund returned to Rome probably to secure approval of his archbishopric by Pope Sergius III since Formosus’ consecrations were condemned in 897 and 905.
He died at Canterbury in 923.
