Saint Imelda - Virgin (1321-1333).
Saint Imelda was born at Bologna in Italy, in the early 14th century. Still a child, she arranged a little oratory in her house, where she often would pray. Her parents permitted her entry into a convent near Bologna. She practiced mortifications above her age, and manifested a very tender love for the Queen of Angels and the Holy Eucharist. The day of the Ascension in 1333, Imelda was twelve years old.
