St. Odilia Medals

Saint Odilia Medals

Patron saint of the blind, Saint Odilia of Alsace was born blind at Oberheim in the Vosges Mountains around the year 660 to a noble family. She was given to a peasant family to raise due to her disability. She regained sight when touched by St. Erhard of Regensburg during her baptism at age 12.

Her brother wanted her back to place in a strategic marriage. Angered by this, her father killed the brother who was miraculously brought back to life by Odilia. Her father pursued her, but abandoned his quest when she disappeared in a cave that opened suddenly in the mountains.

Odilia founded Hohenburg Abbey. She died of natural causes on Dec. 13, 720 at Niedermunster, Mount Sainte Odile and was buried near the Odilienberg convent church chapel. She often is depicted as an abbess praying at an alter or as a woman with two books for eyes.

Another St. Odilia (around 300AD)

St. Odilia joined 10 virgins around 300 AD on a pilgrimage from England to the east. Their journey ended on the River Rhine when soldiers took them under custody near Cologne, Telling their captors she had chosen the cross, Odilia was murdered along with the other virgins.

Odilia's bravery under fire was such that her message of faith and purity resonated with Order of the Holy Cross members who marched under the Crosier standard of King St. Louis. A church was built in 1268 by the king for the Crosiers with whom John was a lay brother.

In 1287, John of Eppa, a Crosier lay brother had three visions of Odilia commanding him to retrieve her relics in Cologne and save them. The order kept the relics safe through the French Revolution. They reside Onamie, Minn. and Huy, Belgium. Her feast day is July 18.
