On the 27th of the month, Saint ‘PROCLA, the wife of Pontius Pilate
Saint Procla, also called Claudia, Procla Claudia, or Procula, died in peace.
When Pilate was seated in the judgement-hall with Christ before
him, his wife Procia sent to him saying: Have nothing to do with
that just man, for I have suffered many things this day in a
dream because of him (Matt. 27:19). But in his anxiety to please
the people and to avoid trouble, Pilate did not heed the warning.
