St. Genevieve. A shepherd girl, right? Yes, but more. At the age of 7 she dedicated herself to God. She is credited for saving Paris from the invading Huns. She had prophetic visions and even had great influence over the king of France. Her enemies tried to drown her. Her body was burned during the French Revolution. She is one of the patron saints of France and is often pictured with Joan of Arc, another patron of France. St. Genevieve is seen with a loaf of bread to represent her generosity.
