(Saint) Virgin (May 1) (8th century) A daughter of Saint Richard, a Saxon Prince in Wessex. She, with her brothers, Saints Willibald and Winebald, devoted her life to the conversion of heathen Germany whither they, with others, were invited by Saint Boniface. Saint Walburga died (A.D. 776) Abbess of Heidenheim, whence her Relics were translated to Eichstadt. Almighty God has made use of the oil that continues to flow at intervals from her shrine for the working of many miracles.
