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.

    Dear St, Genevieve,
    I pray that like you I may have also means of generosity to give and share more bread with people in need and hungry. bread for body and soul that can make us strong in faith, and love for God. Please pray for us and pray with us every time we ask your assistance, and never leave our prayer unheard by God. Amen.

    Hi, my name is genevieve too. When I was in my Mom's womb, my dad told my mom the story of Genevieve, the God fearing daughter, loved by all her people because of her faith in God...she got married to a handsome guy...but when her husband went for a war...she was ill treated by her ministers....puts her in the prison accused of betrayal. Then, she gave birth to a baby boy in the prison..soon the minister came to know about it, and order to be killed..Now, the soldiers took her to a forest far away from the kingdom to kill her, but they know that she was innocent so they left her in the forest alive and as a witness to prove her death, they killed a dog..and took the eyes of the dog as to prove her death to the minister..Now, when husband arrived, the minister told him about her betrayal and told him that she is death....After some few years...the king went for hunting in the forest..later found her and their son......and ithe story goes on...My mom was fully in tears..and decided to name be genevieve its is a baby girl...thats how I was named..I have been looking for the books...but i cant find one....I really want to have the book. thx
