Margaret was born with dwarfism, blindness and a hunchback. Her parents locked her away in a doorless room attached to a church. The parish priest befriended her, and she grew close to God. After a decade, Margaret's parents abandoned her. The poor of Castello took her in, and she became a Dominican sister. Margaret cared for the sick and taught poor children. She was beloved for her cheerful, sacrificial charity.
