Blessed Mary Bartholomea de Bagnesi  1511–1577.
Feast Day: May 27.

Because of her many physical ailments, Mary Bartholomea led a pained and difficult life as a Dominican nun. Eventually bedridden, her room radiated such peace and calm that it attracted many. Cats especially loved her. She is shown with the halo of the Blessed, a cat drinking the milk of human kindness at her feet. She holds a whip for her life of penance, a cross (the object of her meditations), and lilies for purity.
