Virgin, Franciscan tertiary and foundress of the Sacconi, born Vignanello, Italy, 1585; died Viterbo, Italy, 1640. After a frivolous youth and disappointment in love, she entered Saint Bernardine's convent, Viterbo, where for ten years she lived in unbefitting luxury; then, touched by grace, she repented and gave herself up to a life of charity and intense mortification, nursing the plague-stricken and establishing the Sacconi, or Oblates of Mary, for the relief of the poor and aged. Canonized, 1807. Feast, January 30,.
