Book of Saints – Ludovica


(Saint) Widow (January 31) (16th century) Blessed Ludovica Albertoni, a Roman Matron of noble birth, on the death of her husband, sold all her property and distributed the proceeds to the poor. Thenceforth she lived a saintly and useful life as a Tertiary of the Order of Saint Francis. She died 170 at the age of sixty-three, A.D. 1533, and her tomb in the church of Saint Francis in Rome was the scene of many miracles. Her cultus was sanctioned by Pope Clement X, A.D. 1671.
