Saint Lydwina - Virgin
Saint Lydwina was born in Holland of virtuous but poor parents, the only daughter among nine children. In the cradle a grievous illness afflicted her and for seventeen years, she could move no part of her body except, very slightly, her head and left arm. Our Saviour granted her His stigmata, but she prayed that they might remain invisible, in order not to derive any attention from them.
