PAGE 6 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 2016 Saint Juliana of Liege by Juliana and her twin sister Agnes were born in the vil- lage of Retinnes near Liege, Belgium, in 1193. They were orphaned at age five and placed in a newly founded convent at Mont-Cornillon, right outside of Liege. Juliana advanced quick- ly, reading with pleasure the writings of St. Augustine and St. Bernard. She also developed a deep love of the Blessed Vir- gin, and especially the Blessed Sacrament. Agnes seems to have died young, as there is no further mention of her in the archives. In 1206, Juliana received the veil and devoted herself to the sick in the lepro- sarium of the hospital run by the convent. She exerted every bit of her energy to introduce the feast of Corpus Christi. When Juliana was 16, she had her first vision which recurred several times. Her vision was of the moon crossed diametrically Bennett Molinari and Richard by a dark stripe. In time and through revelation, she came to understand that the moon sym- bolized the life of the Church on earth; the dark stripe, on the other hand, represent- ed the absence of a liturgical feast in honor of Christ's Body MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS Sealed General Bids for MPA Contract No. L1398-C1, REHABILITATION OF RUNWAY 4L-22R, LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, EAST BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, will be received-by the Massachusetts Port Authority at the Capital Programs Department Office, Suite 209S, Logan Office Center, One Harborside Ddve, East Boston, Massachusetts 02128-2909, until 11:00 AM. local time on WEDNESDAY, MAY 4, 2016, immediately after which, in a designated room, the proposal will be opened and read publicly.

Not having any way to bring about such a feast, she kept her thoughts to her~ self, except for sharing them with a holy hermit, Blessed Eve of Liege, who lived in a cell adjacent to the Basilica of St. Martin. Juliana's life was filled with tumult, largely as a conse- quence of the religious and political controversies rampant in Liege. When Juliana became prioress of the convent in 1230, she re-instated strict Augustin- ian rules. In 1240, the convent and the adjacent leprosarium came under the supervision of a man named Roger, a vicious man who had gained the posi- tion through intrigue. He im- mediately disliked both Juliana and her reproaches, and incited the people against her. She fled to her friend, Eve, and was then received into a rectory adjacent to the Basilica. With the help of Robert of Thourotte, the Bishop of Liege, Juliana was vindicated and restored to her former posi- tion in the convent. However, upon the death of Bishop Rob- ert, Roger once again regained control of Mont Cornillon un- der the new bishop, Henry de Gueldre, and Juliana was again driven out. Juliana took up residence at the Cistercian Abbey of Sal- zinnes, and finally Fosses-la- ViUe, in the County of Namur, where she lived in seclusion until her death in 1258. Saint Juliana is credited with influencing Pope Urban IV by virtue of her visions, to intro- duce the Feast of Corpus Christi to the Liturgical Calendar in the year 1264. Saint Juliana's feast day is celebrated on April 6th.
