St_Ursula_and_her_Companions_1530St. Ursula, a native of England, sought an asylum in Gaul, when her country was harassed by the Saxons. She found an abiding place in Germany but was set upon by a horde of Huns, and with her companions gave her life in the year 453 in defense of her faith and chastity.
