Life of St. Walburga - Part VII
Kinsfolk Welcoming Her Arrival in the Mission Area (740s?)
Her brothers, Willibald and Wunibald, welcomed Walburga and the nuns with her to Germany. Willibald became the first bishop of Eichstätt, a diocese created in 741 by Boniface. In 752 Wunibald founded a monastery at nearby Heidenheim and became its abbot.
Let us pray we too may respond humbly and lovingly to God’s Divine Providence.
