Blessed Imelda Lambertini was the daughter of an Italian count, at Bologna, in Italy. She was a student at a Dominican convent in that city. They accepted her as a novice at the age of nine. She had an intense love for the Blessed Sacrament, but had not received It. At the age of eleven, when she was kneeling in chapel at Mass, the Sacred Host miraculously left the hands of the priest and went into her mouth. She made a long, long thanksgiving. When the nuns came to call her, they found she had died, of sheer love.
