A little about STE JULIE -
Patron saint against poverty, bodily ills, and disease.
"Julie Billiart was born on July 12, 1751 in the town of Cuvilly near Compiègne in the diocese of Beauvais, of modest parents. Very pious from an early age, she was admitted to first communion at the age of nine. Miraculously cured of a paralysis that had confined her to bed for many years, she founded the congregation of the Sisters of Notre-Dame in 1804, whose main goal was the teaching and Christian education of poor young girls. Difficulties forced her to transfer her community from Amiens to Namur where she died in the midst of the sisters on April 8, 1816."
