Description

Oil Dedicated to St Fina (virgin)

The St Fina is dedicated to Saint Seraphina, also known as Fina.  She is venerated for the courage with which she endured the suffering of illness.

Fina was born to a poor family in the town of San Gimignano, in the Tuscan region of Italy, in the 13th century. She was a beautiful child and had a strong devotion to prayer and to serving others. Even though her family was poor, she always kept half of her food to give to those who were also hungry. She helped her mother with chores and sewing during the day.

Her known history and suffering

Her father died when she was still young, and about that time, she was struck with a mysterious disease that deformed her head, hands, eyes, and feet. She lost her beauty and eventually suffered paralysis and had to be carried around on a plank. The slightest movement caused great pain.

When her mother died suddenly, she was left in utter poverty, reliant on other neighbors who were poor and who did not want to be exposed to her sores. She learned about St. Gregory the Great, who also suffered from a debilitating illness, and she developed a devotion to him, asking him for prayer that God might grant her patience in her suffering.

St. Gregory appeared to her to foretell the day she would die, which came to pass. When her body was removed from the plank on which it rested, the wood was found to be covered with white flowers, and her relics rest in the reliquary chapel of the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Notre Dame’s campus.

St. Seraphina, who even in weakness became a strong sign of hope to the town of San Gimignano
