Patroness of Brussels
d. circa 712
Daughter of Count Witger and St. Amalberger, Gudula was educated at Nivelles under the tutelage of her cousin, St. Gertrude of Nivelles, remained a lay person totally dedicated to prayer and helping the poor, while remaining to dwell in her family's castle near Morzelles, Belgium. She died on January 8; there is no international feast day mentioned.
The Cathedral in Brussels is named after St. Michel the Archangel and her. One of her symbols is a cathedral replica as you can see above. She wears the crown of royalty although she lived a spartan, selfless life. The Cathedral in Brussels is highly sought for weddings and by tourists. The world-wide web is filled with bother inages and many of the Cathedral, interior and exterior.
