However, at an early age, she contracted leprosy and had to be isolated. The disease caused Alice intense suffering, and eventually she became paralyzed and was further afflicted with blindness. Alice's greatest consolation came from reception of the Holy Eucharist, although she was not allowed to drink from the cup because of the presumed danger of contagion. However, the Lord appeared to her with assurance that He was in both the consecrated bread and the wine. Known for visions, she died in 1250. Devotion to her was approved in 1907 by St. Pius X.
