  Born in Italy, Sophia had three daughters: Faith (age 12), Hope (age 10) and Love (age 9), who were named after virtues mentioned by Saint Paul.

The daughters are said to have been martyred during the reign of Hadrian (117–138). The guards took Sophia’s daughters one by one, from the oldest to the youngest and beat and tortured them to death in an attempt to force their mother, Sophia, to give up her faith in Christ. 

Sophia buried her daughters’ bodies and remained by their graves for three days until she died herself.
