St. Veronica Giluliani is known for helping the poor. She was born in Mercatello in the Duchy of Urbino(Italy)on the 27th of December in 1660. She was born with the name of Orsola also known as Ursula. She had seven sisters and was the youngest out of all of them. At the age seven, Ursula’s mom died. As a kid she would always show kindness for the poor. She would put out food and clothes for them. In 1716, when she was 56, she became Abbess of the monastery. Her life was very devoted to Jesus Christ and she got signs, like the thorn marks on her head and the 5 wounds.
O lord Jesus Christ, who did glorify St. Veronica by the marks of thy suffering grant us the grace to crucify our flesh and thus become worthy of attaining to the joys of eternity. Who lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.
