Saint Zoe of Pamphylia was married to Saint Exsuperius. She was the mother of Saint Cyriacus and Saint Theodulus. Her family were Slave owned by a rich, devout worshiper of the ancient Roman gods in Attalia, Pamphylia. St. Zoe’s job was to tend the house dogs and prevent them from biting visitors. She rarely saw her husband as he worked the fields far from the house. One pagan feast day, her family was given meat to sacrifice to an idol. They refused, and the entire family was tortured and murdered.
Burned to death 127 AD.
