She was a daughter of a pagan named Urban, who performed the high-ranking service of the starosta in exterminating Christians. The girl has witnessed numerous tortures carried out on followers of Jesus Christ many times. She was full of admiration for the attitude of Christians, their perseverance and steadfastness in professing their faith. She slowly initiated herself in the truths of Christianity. Thanks to a servant and the priest, she was baptized and received the name Christina. Her father, concerned about his daughter's behavior and her deep compassion for the tortured, ordered Christina to be locked up in a secluded room, she was to worship pagan idols under the watchful eye of the servants. The girl, however, stubbornly refused to worship idols. When her father found out the truth, he condemned the girl to numerous tortures, including scourging, which Saint Christina endured impassively. After that, he ordered the girl to be tied to a wheel and poured over with oil, and to light a fire under the wheel. When terrible torture began, a wind appeared, protecting the girl from burns. It blew the oil and fire to the executioners. Seeing this, girl's father fell over and died. Her father's successor - Dion ordered to put the girl into a cradle filled with boiling tar. She focused on prayer, went inside the cradle and suffered no damage. Seeing that Dion fell to the ground lifeless. After numerous unsuccessful attempts to kill the woman, Saint Krystyna died, struck by an arrow in the very heart.
