We call on the intercession of Saint Ursula with these quality prayer cards. Ursula was the daughter of a Christian king in fourth century Britain. Legend holds that she convinced her father to allow her to take her 10 handmaids with her on a voyage through Europe (some claim that each woman took 1000 assistants along, bringing the number of travelers up to 11,000). While traveling, her group was attacked by the savage Huns who were invading Europe and raping and pillaging along the way. Refusing to be defiled, St. Ursula and her handmaids became martyrs. St. Angela Merici founded an order of nuns in the 15th century tasked with educating girls and caring for the poor, with St. Ursula as the namesake (The Urselines).
