Saint Julienne de Cornillon  1192–1258. Feast Day: April 5.

An Augustinian nun, who with Eve of Liege began the proceeding for the Feast of Corpus Christi. For many years Julienne had a vision of the sun with a black band around it. This symbolized that something was missing from the Church calendar. She is shown with the banded sun, the monstrance holding the body of Christ, her convent in the background, and a closed book of mysterious teaching. A lily is at her side and the Augustinian shield is in the lower corner.


The above saints for April have been taken from the book “Holy Cards” by Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua. All images are courtesy of Father Eugene Carrella.
