Obscure Saint of the Day: Blessed Eva of Liege

We're going all beatified on you Catholic Hipsters today!

Today is the feast of Bl. Eva of Liege!!

Eva was a friend of Blessed Juliana of Mount Cornillon. Eva inspired Julana to work toward a special feast for the Blessed Sacrament. 

After Juliana died, Eva took up her cause with Pope Urban IV. He was totally on board, and we now know this special feast as Corpus Christi. 

How cool is that? 

Blessed Eva of Liege, pray for us!
