Joan of Arc was a saint like this as well, she was too far ahead of her times and was killed by her fellow men, because they didn’t know what else to do.

I am choosing St. Anastasia because she made it through tough times with her faith always in God. St. Anastasia was not canonized, she has been declared a saint by the early Christian community based on her life of heroic virtue and her martyrdom. St. Anastasia spent her time caring for the prisoners. She would feed them and care for them if they were ill.

St. Anastasia was so self-less about helping other people, even if it meant risking her life. Her father was a pagan and her mother was secretly a
