About Our Patron:
Born a blind, crippled, dwarf with a hunchback to parents in the nobility, Margaret was shunned by them and at age 6 or so and was walled into the side of a Catholic Church. There she could hear the prayers of the Mass and receive Our Lord in Holy Communion. Later, hearing that miracles were occurring in Castello, the parents took her there (she was about 13). When no miracle came, they simply abandoned her on the steps of the shrine. She forgave them, and eventually became a Dominican sister, and was the person God used to heal others of their physical ills.
