(Saint) Virgin (June 19) (14th century) Born at Florence (A.D. 1270) at the age of sixteen, she renounced her great fortune to consecrate herself entirely to God. She received the Religious habit from Saint Philip Benizi, who by means of her built up the Third Order of the Servites, styled from their costume the “Mantellate.” Her life was one of prayer and penance to which she gave herself up utterly in every minute of time left free to her from her assiduous service of the sick and of the poor. Her devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, was all-absorbing, and she was miraculously comforted with Holy Viaticum before she passed to Christ, her Spouse (A.D. 1340). She was canonised nearly four hundred years afterwards by Pope Clement XII.
