    Ok. If you guys want any info about her here:

    She was born in Dilbeek near Brussels, Belguim
    She died in c. 640
    Her feast day is in 24 June
    She was baptized without her parents knowing and came to mass secretly. One day her father sent a soldier to follow her. The soldier found out and tried to arrest her but she resisted. In the fight she lost an arm. Her arm was taken by an angel and the angel took it to the alter in the chapel she attended. After that her mother and father converted into Christianity.
    In traditional art she was seen with one arm healing a blind man with an angel helping her.
    I hope that helped! (I am using Alena as my confirmation name too, and that took long to type) O:)
