St. Gregory’s Sister

St. Gregory had a sister, Gorgonia, who died around the year 372. At her funeral, St. Gregory told the following tale.

Gorgonia suffered from a palsy. One night, she cast herself down, before the Blessed Sacrament, which was reserved on an altar in her home. She declared that she would not leave until she received a cure. Crying over the matter, it seems that some of her tears even fell upon the Sacred Host.

It was then that she felt, and in fact was, healed.
