St. Ursula

 

Saint Ursula Biography

Actually, not much is known about Saint Ursula.  It is told that she was the daughter of the king in Britain during the third or fourth century.  She was on a voyage with eleven thousand handmaids.  They were sailing to Rome to meet with the pope.

On their return trip, Saint Ursula and all her maidens were tortured and martyred by the Huns in Cologne because they refused to deny their Christian faith. 

There are many legends that were written about Saint Ursula but none are based on fact and all of them have varying ways in which Saint Ursula was martyred.  In spite of this lack of evidence, the feast of Saint Ursula is celebrated on October 21.

Ursuline Order

Saint Ursula

 The exact time of this event is unknown and it is considered by most theologians to be fictitious, however, the Ursuline Order of nuns was founded in honor of Saint Ursula and is dedicated to teaching young girls.  Because of this Saint Ursula is the patron saint of students. 

Many Catholics give young girls who are starting school or attending Catholic schools a Saint Ursula medal or a Saint Ursula charm as a gift.  They hope that the Saint Ursula necklace inspires the young girls to take advantage of their educations and help them to be good students who are eager to learn.

 Saint Ursula Venerated

Saint Ursula was also depicted in a painting by Victor Carpaccio entiled, The Dream of Saint  Ursula, which is located in the Gallerie dell Accademia in Venice.  The painting of Saint Ursula has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people.

Saint Ursula was also venerated by Christopher Columbus when he discovered the Virgin Islands.  He named the islands in honor of Saint Ursula and her virgin handmaidens.

Also, in the book, Butler’s Lives of the Saints, he states, "these holy martyrs seem… to have met a glorious death in defence of their virginity from the army of the Huns… They came originally from Britain, and Ursula was the conductor and encourager of the holy troop."
