Book of Saints – Maxima – 16 May


(Saint) Virgin (May 16) (8th century) The Acts of this Saint are lost. Tradition presents her as a maiden of noble birth who lived a life of eminent piety and of marvellous graces in the eighth or ninth century in the country about Frejus in the South of France. Several villages in Provence are called after her. The Saracen inroads are probably responsible for the destruction of all documents respecting her.
