St. Bridget loved the poor and began providing food and clothing to them at a young age. Bridget decided that she wanted to become a nun, and resisted her father's attempts to have her marry. She was a very beautiful girl, and received attention from many young men. Bridget prayed that God would take away her beauty as it was hindering her from devoting her whole life to God. God granted her request and she was no longer beautiful. Her father allowed her to become a nun, and when she finally professed her final vows, a miracle occurred, her beauty was restored. St. Bridget's feast day is celebrated on February 1st. See also: St. Brigid.
