Her parents, Francesco Giuliani and Benedetta Mancini, were both of well to do families. Ursula showed signs of sanctity from an early age, she showed great compassion for the poor and though she was a very reli- gious person by nature, showing tendencies to enter religious life, her father insisted that she would marry when she came of age. As a result of her father's insistence she be- came very ill, only then did he realize the true nature of her vocation. In 1677, at the age of seventeen, Ursula was allowed to enter the Capuchin convent of Poor Clares at Citta di Castello in Umbria taking the name of Veronica in memory of the Passion. At the conclusion of the ceremony of her re- ception into the Poor Clares, the bishop said to the abbess: "I commend this new daugh- ter to your special care, for she will one day be a great saint." In her first years in the monastery, she worked in the kitchen, infirmary and sacristy and also served as portress. At the age of 34, she was made novice mis- tress. When she was 37, Veronica received the stig- mata, life was not the same after that. As a result she was subjected to close,scru- tiny by her superiors. Church authorities in Rome wanted to test Veronica's authenticity and so con- ducted an investigation. Though this caused Veronica some distress it ensured that her mystical experiences were well docu- mented, making her an out- standing case in the history of mystical phenomena. She led her sisters as nov- ice mistress with determi- nation tempered by humil- ity, for thirty-four years and diligently laid the foundation for the Sisters in her charge to progress in humility, obe- dience and charity. Though she protested against it, in 1716 at the age of 56 she was elected abbess, an office she held for 11 years until her death. She improved her sis- ters' comfort by enlarging the convent rooms and hav- ing water pumped into the convent, Veronica passed away on July 9, 1727 leaving behind a record of her religious ex- periences entitled "Diary of the Passion" written at the request of her confessor. Veronica was very devoted to the Eucharist and to the Sacred Heart. She offered her sufferings for the mis- sions; she was canonized in 1839. Saint Veronica's Feast is celebrated on July 9th. ii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii iiiii i iiii iii i MICHAEL CEMETERY 500 Canterbury Street The Respecqid \Vay Boston, MA 02131 617.524.1036 Serving the Italian Community for Over 100 Years!
