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.
