Mary of Oignies ate coarse bread until her throat bled; Ida of Louvain ate only the flowers of a lime tree for 11 days; Bona of Pisa was given money by Christ in a vision to buy a hair shirt; Francesca de Ponziani was visited by demons who beat, whipped, cut her and dumped her in a privy; and at age five Catherine of Sienna was found praying in corners or walking up the stairs saying a Hail Mary with each step.
