The Life of St. Hyacintha Mariscotti, Virgin, Third Order (1585-1640) for the Franciscan Saint of the Day for Jan 30. Hyacintha was born of wealthy parents in Italy and lived a dissolute life and then entered the convent living a laxed life until an illness and a rebuke from her confessor. She then made up for her laxity by doing penance and growing in devotion and sanctity.
