St. Rachel

Rachel is an Old Testament figure. When Jacob traveled to the house of his kinsman Laban he fell in love with Rachel and agreed to Laban's terms for the marriage. Jacob worked for Laban for seven years in order to marry Rachel. Laban deceived Jacob on his wedding night, giving him his older daughter Leah instead. Jacob then worked another seven years for the privilege of marrying Rachel. When Leah bore children to Jacob, Rachel was envious and gave Jacob her handmaid as a concubine, for according to custom the handmaid's children would be considered her own. Rachel's maid bore Dan and Nephtali to Jacob. After some years, the "Lord remembered" Rachel and she bore sons to Jacob, including Joseph and Benjamin. Rachel died giving birth to Benjamin; she named him Benomi "the son of my pain," but his father named him Benjamin "son of the right hand." Rachel was buried on the road leading to Bethlehem, but the exact location of her grave is disputed.
