The date is significant for several reasons. First, it is the feast day of St. Ursula, the British princess, virgin and martyr who, as sacred legend tells, was martyred on her return journey from Rome. Second, it is three years and a day since the Vatican press conference announced the coming existence of Personal Ordinariates. Third, Blessed Marianne Cope will be declared a saint on this day in St. Peter's Square. The saint-to-be is the patron of the parish hosting our Fellowship. She also grew up in upstate New York and started her religious life in the area.
