Life of St. Walburga - Part XI
St. Walburga’s Death (February 25, 779)
Walburga died peacefully after many years of courageously carrying her cross, the burden of being an abbess; it was indeed the cross which inspired so many Anglo-Saxons to do such great things for God. However, her life is not limited to her earthly biography, but includes her being and working in God after death (cf. Benedict XVI, Deus Caritas Est, 42).
Let us pray that we may do Our Father’s will with loving and loyal hearts.
