In the year 1042, within the Moorish-held village of Villavelayo, Spain, Saint Aurea was born. Her early years were steeped in the study of Scripture and the tales of early Church martyrs. She found particular solace and inspiration in the lives of Saints Agatha, Eulalia, and Cecilia.

Emboldened by these figures, Aurea left her familial home as a young woman, seeking the cloistered life. She entered the convent of San Millan de la Cogolla, immersing herself fully in its rituals and routines. It wasn’t long before a profound vision of her three cherished saints bolstered her commitment to this chosen path. Through her, a multitude of miracles were said to manifest, drawing many to seek her counsel and intercessions. Her reputation for spiritual visions and miraculous deeds spread far and wide.

However, her time in the monastery was to be short-lived. By 1069, a grievous illness claimed her, ending her life at the age of twenty-seven.

  5. St. Aurea should help me in asking our mother Mary to intercede for those I’m praying for in this Lenten season, barren wife, poor sick that can’t afford to pay for their treatment, youths seeking employment and the poorest of the poor who don’t know where their next meal would come from. Freedom for souls in purgatory and the eternal rest for the souls of the faithful departed. That the good Lord may grant this Lenten request through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, AMEN
