Book of Saints – Lutgarde


(Saint) Virgin (June 16) (13th century) Born at Tongres (Brabant) A.D. 1182, and professed as a nun at the age of twenty. After some years the Sisters insisted on her being made Prioress, whereupon she retired to a little convent at Aywieres. Here, for thirty years, through her prayers, miracle followed upon miracle — the most wonderful of all being the holiness of her own life. She died A.D. 1246, and her name was inserted in the Roman Martyrologv.
