(1847-1903)

St. Geltrude had a very special relationship with Jesus, committing herself to him at age 7 when she secretly left her house early in the early morning hours to receive her first holy Communion. She was a very serious child, and she would contemplate her love of Jesus in deep thought. As a young girl she formed a guard of honor with friends with the motto “Jesus, loving you and making others love you.” When she was older she formed the Congregation of the Sacramentine Sisters of Bergamo and spent the rest of her life in adoration of the Eucharist and educating poor women factory workers.
