St. Rosalia, Virgin of Palermo
St Rosalia was born to a noble family around the year 1125. At a very young age she left the court to live the life of a hermit; she was only 35 when she died. Her popularity increased when, during a plague, her relics were carried in procession around Palermo, resulting in many healings.
