 ~*~*About St. Rhoda*~*~

Rhoda is not a canonized saint, but we think she should be. She appears in only three verses of the New Testament, Acts 12:12-15. When the miraculously liberated St. Peter appears at the door of her house church, she runs to share the good news, mirroring St. Mary Magdalene's eager rush to inform the disciples of Jesus' resurrection. Like Magdalene, and like so many women before and since, Rhoda receives disbelief and minimizing language from her community when she relays this good news. In naming these garments after her, we reclaim Rhoda's legacy as a bearer of Gospel witness.

We also personally identify with Rhoda. Because, in her eagerness to tell her church about Peter's miraculous escape from prison, she forgot to let him in the door.
