Saint Emilia (also known as Emmelia, Amelia, or Emily) was born in the fourth century. She was the daughter of an unknown martyr and wife of Saint Basil the Elder, who was a lawyer in Caesarea.
Saints Basil and Emilia bore ten children, five of which are numbered among the saints: Basil the Great, Macrina the Younger, Gregory of Nyssa, Peter of Sebaste, and Theosebia the Deaconess.
This powerful patron saint for mothers reposed on May 30, 375. Her feast is celebrated on May 30, and in some traditions on May 8 and January 1.
