The story of Saint Odelia, patron saint of the Alsace region in France, is one of the most beautiful legends from the middle ages. It is about the destiny of a child, born blind and turned out by her father, who gains her sight through a miracle at her baptism. The young girl goes her way unerringly and against all odds, to establish the convent later named for her: Odilienberg.

A beautiful retelling, lacking any trace of sentimentalism and filled with wonder.  Ideal for the Saints and Heroes block in the Waldorf 2nd grade.
