Today’s saint is Saint Ubald:
Ubald of Gubbio (Italian: Ubaldo; Latin: Ubaldus; French: Ubalde; ca. 1084–1160) was a medieval bishop of Gubbio, in Umbria, today venerated as a saint by the Catholic Church. Saint Ubaldo Day is still celebrated at the Basilica of Sant’Ubaldo in Gubbio in his honor, as well as at Jessup, Pennsylvania.
A few quick facts:
- He was apparently born to some wealth, but gave it all away.
- Ubald rejected several offers to become a bishop before finally accepting the role of bishop of his home city.
- He apparently played a role in keeping Frederick Barbarossa from sacking his home city of Gubbio.
