The Life of Blessed Margaret of Castello

Blessed Margaret was born a hunchback, midget, blind, lame and ugly. When she was 6, her proud, noble parents walled her up beside a chapel. She could not get out, but could attend Mass and receive the Sacraments. After 14 years of imprisonment, her parents took her to a shrive to pray for a cure. When no cure was forthcoming, they abandoned her. She became a. lay Dominican and spent the rest of her life in prayer and works of mercy.
