Blessed Eve of liège  Died 1266. Feast Day: May 26.
Eve was a Cistercian nun who lived as a recluse. When Saint Julienne of Cornillon was driven from her convent, she took shelter in Eve’s cell. Eve helped her to propagate the Feast of Corpus Christi. Eve holds the Papal Proclamation of the feast and an open book which signifies the widespread celebration of this feast. She has the halo of the Blessed.

  1. I very much like this, since little is written about this woman. She came from an influential and wealthy family. While she gave it all up to become a Cistercian nun her influence was still useful when later, as an anchoress she was able to still forward her friend Juliana’s work for the establishment of the feast of Corpus Christi. Bl Eve is owed more hagiographical attention than she has received. .
