St. Genevieve was the patroness of Paris. She was born between 419 and 422 in Nanterre where she heard the preachig of St. Germain. She later came to Paris where she led a life of piety, and in 451 when Attila approached the city, she encouraged the citizens not to flee but to do works of penance and the town would be spared. Attila and his hordes did in fact spare the town, When she died in 512 her body was buried in a small church she had built and miracles were performed there.
