St. Alice

St. Alice was born in Shaerbeck, near Brussels in the thirteenth century. At the age of seven, Alice joined the convent, where she remained a Cistercian nun for the rest of her life. At an early age, Alice contracted Leprosy and had to be isolated from the rest of the community. Alice suffered much, and found her only consolation in the reception of the Eucharist. Alice was known for her great humility, frequent ecstasies, and the visions she had. Alice died in 1250, and was declared a saint in 1907. St. Alice's feast day is celebrated on June 15th.
