Catherine of Bologna, her body is a witness to sanctity

Intact, placed in a glass chapel in the Corpus Domini Monastery in Bologna, the body of Saint Catherine de' Vigri (†1463) continues to secrete a fragrant oil, which is why her clothes are changed periodically. Many believers have experienced graces and healings by praying at her tomb. She was an abbess and lived in an austere way, although she loved the cuisine of her land. The Poor Clares she led were famous for their fresh filled pasta.
