Saint Of The Day April 22: Senorina Of Vieira

Today a Portuguese saint, as we gradually retrace all the colors of the world: Senorina di Vieira who was related to another well-known saint

It seems bizarre how the world works.

There is a saying that goes: “Tell me who you go with and I’ll tell you who you are”.

Reviewing the lives of the saints, it emerges how these people tend to hang out, to have good relationships.

And so, since the words resound in the Gospel: “Is this not the son of Joseph the carpenter” we understand that the virtue of holiness rejects every cliché and every district of opinion.

Here are some small chronicles of the life of Santa Senorina Vieira.

The other saints who cross Senorina’s path

We place ourselves around the 10th century.

A Celtic name Senorina which already implies, in itself, a feminine pride, without second thoughts, pure

Her origins are of high lineage, nobles and her aunt among others abbess in a Benedictine monastery founded by St. John of Vieira.

Already a relative of San Rosendo who was the founder of real monasteries handed down in exemplary conditions up to the present day, the vocation of the young woman was very precocious.

A life entirely dedicated to study, meditation and prayer, following the Benedictine rule.

However, she never echoed a minimum of presumption nor feared any ambition when Senorina was in turn nominated abbess, after the death of her aunt.

Her father was a great lord and boasted possessions ranging from the territory of Vieira to that of Basto.

And from her new abbess she immediately gave a wise lesson that today we find it difficult to apply: never live with routine and fear of change.

She immediately arranged for the transfer of the monastic community from Vieira to Basto.

Santa Senorina help us to make us examples of courage so that we never give up on the path of faith.
