Saint Celina of Meaux



Born to the nobility, she was drawn to religious life; this desire was intensified when she met Saint Genevieve. Her fiance opposed the choice. Celina fled to the local cathedral with Saint Genevieve; its doors opened to admit them, closed behind them, and could not be opened again until the fiance and Celina’s family agreed to her choice. She spent the rest of her life as a prayerful nun devoted to works of charity.
