Blessed Feast of St. Jutta!

St. Jutta (Judith) was born circa 1200 in central Germany and greatly influenced by St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Jutta married a nobleman at the age of 15, raised a family, and her husband died on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. All of her children entered religious life and Jutta became a hermit. Like St. Elizabeth, Jutta joined the Third Order of St. Francis, gave away her property, spent most of her time contemplation or helping the needy.

St. Jutta moved to what is now modern-day Poland and gave spiritual direction to many. She said that there were three things that can bring one near to God: painful sickness, exile from home, and poverty voluntarily accepted for God. St. Jutta dedicated her final days to praying for the conversion of unbelievers. She died circa 1260 and interred at the local cathedral. (Source: American Catholic)
