Feast day: September 11
Saint Theodora was from Alexandria, Egypt, and found herself in a life of sin. However, upon realizing her sinful ways, she repented. After her atonement, she spent the rest of her life as a hermit in southern Egypt, disguised as a man.
During her time in the hermitage, she lived out her penitence through abstinence and mortifications. It was not known to others that she was a woman until her death.
