CHRISTINA OF HAMM, BL.
Flourished 15th century, Westphalia, Germany. According to W. Rolevinck in Fasciculus temporum (1482) 12 witnesses testified that a young girl named Stine, who had recently been baptized in 1464, had borne the stigmata (see stigmatization) in her hands, feet, and side. She was honored with a popular cult. Her feast day was probably adopted from that of Christina of Stommeln.
Feast: June 22.
