Why a sheep?
Regina was born in France in the 3rd century and her mother died giving birth to her. Regina’s nurse baptized her and because her father was a pagan, he renounced her. Regina went to live with the nurse and took care of sheep to provide their means. While tending sheep, she prayed and communed with God. A young man desired to marry her and tried to convince her to renounce her faith, but because of her steadfastness, she was tortured and eventually martyred.
