The amazing story of the early Roman virgin-martyr whose bones were discovered in 1802. She immediately began answering prayers, with so many favors and miracles being granted that she was raised to sainthood by Pope Gregory XVI -- becoming the only person recognized by the Church as a saint solely on the basis of her powerful intercession, since nothing historically is known of her except her name and the evidence of her martyrdom. A great intercessor for all needs!
