St. Walburga Departs from Her Native Land (740s)

St. Walburga Departs from Her Native Land (740s)

Walburga’s great kinsman is St. Boniface (c.675-754), a missionary to Germany.  He was a Benedictine monk, an archbishop and a martyr.  Filled with good zeal she left England to help him to proclaim Christ’s inexhaustible riches. Inevitably saying goodbye to loved ones was painful and she was never to see her native land again.

Let us pray for all those suffering from the loss of loved ones.
