St. Genevieve Comments

St. Genevieve was born about the year 422, at Nanterre near Paris. She was seven years old when St. Germain of Auxerre came to her native village on his way to great Britain to combat the heresy of Pelagius. The child stood in the midst of a crowd gathered around the man of God, who singled her out and foretold her future sanctity. At her desire the holy Bishop led her to a church, accompanied by all the faithful, and consecrated her to God as a ... Continue Reading

    As a father of 2 daughters, upon reading about the life of St. Genevieve, have decided to choose her for my saint for the year. Her faith, intelligence and commitment to virginity for herself and other young women is inspiring, especially today, in a world that seems to put little value on such things. I'll pray for her intercession and assistance, for both myself and family, throughout the year.

    St. Genevieve, please intercede that I may have the discipline, desire, strength, and will to imitate your life of prayer, fasting and good works. I pray that I can be closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ that He will always be my first love.

    Maybe she obtained me the blessing to go to Paris often when I was living in France. As I ask the saints in Heaven to pray for my most important intentions I thank her for the graces she already has obtained for me.

    St. Genevieve, pray for us to imitate your life of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, which will bring us closer to Jesus and His beloved Mother Mary. What you did in motivating the people of Paris saved them from the barbarian, Attila the Hun, saved Paris from being ransacked and ruined. Help us dear, sweet saint to be holy and prayerful in the most provocative circumstances of everyday life. With a constant prayer life we too can triumph, as we are all called to be saints. Amen.

    When I was a child , I too heard about St. Genevieve( as genevieve Sept 15th says) through the story ( that she was married & had a child & suffered a lot as soon as her husband left for war & was reunited with him when he went hunting after some years .)

    And when I googled St. Genevieve, I got a completely different story - the same one as on this site.
    I am so confused. Does anyone know which is the real story of her life?
    Can anyone please tell me ?

    I really love her story and it is such a pretty name. (: This is definitely gonna be my confirmation name. Saint Genevieve caught my eye while I was looking at the Saints to pick one for my confirmation. If I had to choose another name for myself it would be Genevieve, it's so pretty and elegant to me. (:
    God Bless.
