> St. Pelagia
There is 1 question in this category.
As I was reading the story of St. Pelagia, I read that she threw herself out of a window because she was afraid of the soldiers that the magistrate sent to arrest her since she lived by herself. But, we consider her to be a saint even though she committed suicide and threw herself out of her window. I thought that whoever commits suicide for any reason is because they lost hope in God and they are not to enter heaven and our church doesn't even pray on them. Please clarify why we consider her to be a saint even though she committed suicide.
