Unstoppable Margery Kempe
Margery Kempe managed to bear more than a dozen children, travel thousands of miles and defy arrest by the Church. With a persona that could have inspired Joyce's Molly Bloom, she wrote a colourful autobiography, though unable to read or write. She died unpublished, but her book had a miraculous publication history. Her feast day is today, but she was no saint except as we all are, falling down and picking ourselves back up.
