(Saint) Virgin (September 4) (12th century) The Patron Saint of Palermo in Sicily, of which city she was a native. She passed her life as a recluse in a cave on a hillside, not far from Palermo, and died there at the age of thirty (A.D. 1160). She was famous for the austerity of her penitential life and for the many miracles wrought in answer to her prayers.
