Saint Alice of Schaerbeek (also known as Adelaide or Aleydis) was entrusted to the care of the Cistercian nuns of La Cambre Abbey when she was seven years old and remained there for the rest of her life, eventually becoming a Cistercian laysister. At 20 she contracted leprosy and was isolated from the community. A year later she was stricken blind and later became completely paralyzed. Alice's greatest consolation came from reception of the Holy Eucharist, although she was not allowed to drink from the cup because of the danger of contagion. However, the Lord appeared to her with an assurance that to receive under one species, was sufficient. Known for her visions and ecstasies, she died in 1250.
