Patron Of: Nuns, West Indies

    We don't know who her parents were or what became of them. She was raised in the Cistercian abbey of Helfta, Eisleben, Saxony from age five. An extremely bright student, and gentle person. At age 26, when she had become too enamored of philosophy, she received a vision of Christ who reproached her; from then on she studied the Bible and the works of the Church Fathers. Received many visions and mystical instruction, which formed the basis of her writings. Helped spread devotion to the Sacred Heart. Her writings have been greatly praised by Saint Teresa and Saint Francis de Sales, and continue in print today.

    6 January 1256 at Eisleben, Germany

    on a Wednesday of Easter season in 1302 of natural causes; relics in the old monastery of Helfta

    never formerly canonized; received equipollent canonization and a universal feast day declared in 1677 by Pope Clement XII
