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

    I'm getting my Confirmation done soon and I saw Genevieve under rain which is my favorite weather, so I clicked on the name and read that amazing story. She is going to be my Confirmation name and now that's my favorite name!

    Kateri Tehkakwitha was a God Fearing virgin who loved Jesus and Mary. She was called Lily of the Mohawks. and spent her time in deep prayer and helping others. She was baptized in 1676 and had a short life and died in 1680 at the age of 24. Because of her devotions and immense sacrifices she became admired by her own people and the Jesuits priests who were her spiritual guides. After her death many healings and miracles were credited to her intervention. Years later a Bishop for Quebec who did not know her personally but became aware of her spiritual impact called her the Genevieve of Canada. Saint Genevieve of Paris and Kateri were sisters of faith and of the heart.

    We also loved this name....and what a great story! We named our daughter Jenivieve, who was born on January 18th. A little twist on the spelling, but we also incorporated it from our dear friend "Jeni" who passed one year ago on Jan 1st.
    God Bless you Saint Genivieve!

    I came looking for a page to share with Facebook friends. My mom and Busia would call me every year on January 3rd to wish me a happy name's day - one of the many little things I miss dearly about them. It's cool to see all these other Genevieves on here - both by birth and confirmation. I never knew another Genevieve growing up except friends of my Busia (grandmother). Nice to see more young people with this great name =)
