Saint Odilia (also known as Odile and Ottilia) was born blind to a noble family, and because of the humiliation of her handicap, she was removed from the house and placed in a monastery. At her baptism at the age of 12, she miraculously recovered her eyesight and was restored to her father and the world. Her personal beauty, and her father's wealth and power, attracted to her many rich suitors.  She refused them all; and her father himself built a Monastery on the rocks of Hohenburg, wherein she served her divine Lord, governed a large community as Abbess, and gave relief to every sort of suffering until she died of natural causes.
