 Our Description


[422-500], was born near Paris, dedicated her life to God at 7, moved to Paris and became a nun at 15. She had many visions and prophecies. Her prayers are said to have turned Attila the Hun away from Paris toward Orleans. She brought boatloads of corn to the city when it was blockaded by Childeric, King of the Franks and she even persuaded him to release many captives. By the time her death, King Clovis had become a Christian and built a church in Paris to house her relics. She is shown as a shepherdess, with a staff, holding a candle, guarded by an angel while a devil attempts to blow it out. She is patron of Paris, disasters, drought, fever, excessive rain and of the Women's Army Corps. Her feast is January 3.

Profile
When she was seven years old, Genevieve met Saint Germanus of Auxerre on his way to England. Germain befriended her because of her insistence on wanting to live her life for God, and prophesied her future sanctity. Took the veil at age 15. Prophesied invasions and disasters for Paris. Could read consciences and calm the possessed. When Paris was besieged by the Franks, she encouraged its defense, organized prayers for God's protection of the city, and led an expedition for food to relieve the seige. Caused a church to be built on the tomb of Saint Denis. In 1129, the procession of her relics through Paris is believed to have ended an epidemic.
