Ste Genevieve, Patroness of Paris and of France
Today, I believe, in the Universal Calendar, is a Feria with no Commemoration. It is, however, the traditional Feast of Ste Genevieve, Patroness of Paris and of France, who saved Paris from the Huns. Unfortunately, since she is not in the Universal Calendar, I cannot find the Propers of her Feast.
However, her Collect, from the Common of Virgins:
Graciously hear us, O God of our salvation: that, like as we do rejoice in the festival of blessed Genevieve, thy holy Virgin ; so we may learn to follow her in all godly and devout affections. Through our Lord.
And From the Roman Martyrology:
At Paris, St. Genevieve, virgin, who was consecrated to Christ by St. Germanus, bishop of Auxerre, and who became famous for her admirable virtues and miracles.
