Saint of the day

January 18

BLESSED CHRISTINA

Blessed Christina lived in the sixteenth century. She was born in Abruzzi, Italy. Her baptismal name was Matthia. As she grew up, Matthia felt the call to a life of prayer and penance. She chose to become a cloistered nun. Matthia entered the convent of St. Augustine in Aquila.

She was called Sister Christina. Sister Christina's life as a nun was hidden and silent. But the people of Aquila began to find out about the beauty of her vocation. She and the other nuns were bringing many blessings to them through their prayerful dedication. Sister Christina was cloistered but she was very aware of the needs of the poor people of her area. She and the nuns provided for them whatever they could.

Sister Christina also kept herself aware of the crosses and sufferings people experienced. She prayed and offered penances to the Lord for their intentions. Jesus blessed Sister Christina with ecstasies and the ability on occasion to know the future. The Lord even used her to work miracles for the good of others.

When she died, the little children of Aquila went through the streets shouting that the holy nun was dead. It was January 18, 1543. A large crowd of people came to honor and thank her for the gift she had been for their city.

Although we may not be able to see the results of our prayers, the life of this cloistered nun shows us how powerful prayer can be.
