St. Christina: Frightening Revelations and Life of Stupendous Miracles

ChurchPop: So, Christina the Astonishing is sort of a saint.

She lived in the late 12th century and early 13th century, right around the time the Church was forming the modern canonization process, and she’s never been been formally canonized. Nonetheless, she was popularly considered a saint for centuries after her death. Her relics have been preserved, she was included in a version of Butler’s Lives of Saints, and was even honored on local liturgical calendars at various points. And apparently there remains a strong devotion to her in Belgium. Read account here.
