Saint Julitta (3rd cent Caesarea) lived during the time of Diocletian. When she sued a pagan for stealing her entire property, he told the judge she was Christian, and, therefore, not protected by the law. The judge said she would receive her property back if she renounced Christ. She refused and was burned to death. (Jul 31)
