Saturday Saints- #102

The letter U is featured in today’s post. Not the most common, but not unheard of, either. This gives us today’s saint, Saint Ursula Ledóchowska:

Ursula Maria Ledóchowska, USAHJ (17 April 1865 – 29 May 1939) was a Polish Catholic Religious Sister, who founded the Congregation of the Ursulines of the Agonizing Heart of Jesus. She was a member of the prominent Ledóchowski family. She has been declared a saint by the Catholic Church.

A few snippets:

  • Her family came from Aristocratic origins.
  • She was the 5th of 10 children.
  • She traveled throughout Europe as part of her religious duties, eventually settling and dying in Rome.

More can be found out about her at her wiki, located here.
