St. Begga (7th century)
Begga was an example of keeping good company. She was the daughter of Blessed Pepin and Saint Ida of Nevilles, her sister was St. Gertrude of Nevilles, and her husband was the son of St. Arnulf of Metz. When her husband died in a hunting accident, she made a vow of celibacy, founded seven churches, and built a convent where she lived as the abbess for the rest of her life.

Reflections from the Saints

May our lives may show forth the virtue of self denial and thereby attain the eternal salvation of our souls.
