    You can print from the internet or download this Blessed Imelda coloring page pdf file. 

    On her fifth birthday, Imelda asked her parents to receive Holy Eucharist that year. But, in 1322 children did not receive their First Holy Communion until they were 14. Imelda could not wait until that far off happy day and would ask, "Tell me, can anyone receive Jesus into his heart and not die?"

    When she was nine she joined the Dominican convent near Bologna. On May 12, Blessed Imelda knelt in prayer and the tabernacle opened and Our Lord, under the appearance of bread, came out to meet little Imelda. One of the sisters saw the miracle and she ran to tell the priest who gave Blessed Imelda her First Holy Communion. Imelda spent so many hours in thanksgiving that a sister had to be sent to fetch her. She found Imelda with a heavenly smile on her face but when the nun called her name, Imelda did not respond. The sister gently nudged her, at which Imelda collapsed to the floor, dead. The child had had her wish, she had received her Savior and had died of pure joy.

    In 1910, Pope Puis X lowered the age for receiving First Holy Communion from 14 to about 7 years old. 

    Her feast day is May 12th.


    A really great story to listen to about Blessed Imelda is the Glory Story: "Let the Children Come to Me".
