Bl. Maria Adeodata Pisani (1806-1855)

The daughter of a baron, Maria renounced her life of luxury to become a cloistered Benedictine nun. She was known for her love of the poor, her austere lifestyle, and her ecstacies.

"We always find that those who walked closest to Christ were those who had to bear the greatest trials." St. Teresa of Avila
