St. Zita

The patron saint of bakers and domestic servants. Born in the early 13th century, to a poor family, in Montsegradi, near Lucca, in Tuscany; and died in Lucca on 27th April 1271. She was extremely badly treated during her life as a domestic servant. When she was put in charge of domestic servants at a large house, she managed to use any spare money to give to alms houses. After her death numerous miracles were attributed to her.
