The Roman MartyrologyDecember 25
The same day is the Nativity of St. Anastasia. In the time of Diocletian she suffered harsh treatment by her husband Publius, although in this she was much consoled and comforted by Chrysogonus the Confessor of Christ. Later, under Florus, the Prefect of Illyria, she was tortured at length until finally, her hands and feet were stretched out and tied to poles and a fire was lit around her. She achieved this martyrdom on the island of Palmaria [off the north-west coast of Italy]. She was one among the two hundred men and seventy women who were taken there and suffered martyrdom in various ways.
