Ursula Ledochowska

May 29

Born into a distinguished Polish family in Austria, Julia Maria
entered an Ursuline convent in Poland at age 21, taking the name
Maria Ursula of Jesus. She taught in a girls' school for 20 years,
and in 1907 went to St. Petersburg to supervise a new school.
Expelled from Russia at the beginning of World War I, she spent
the war in Sweden and returned to Poland in 1920. In 1923, she
founded the Ursulines of the Agonizing Heart of Jesus, known as
Grey Ursulines. As the order expanded, the Vatican asked her to
live in Rome, where she died. Grey Ursulines now minister in 12
countries. Ursula was canonized in 2003; her older sister, Blessed
Maria Theresa Ledochowska, is also a foundress.
