Saint Eulalia of Barcelona: Patron Saint of Drought Relief

Saint Eulalia of Barcelona (Patron Saint of Drought Relief) (Feast Date: February 12)

Extract from St. Eulalia of Barcelona: “The Acts of her life and martyrdom were copied early in the twelfth century, and with elegant conciseness, by the learned ecclesiastic Renallus Grammaticus (Bol. acad. hist., Madrid, 1902, XLI, 253-255). Their chief historical source is a Latin hymn of the middle of the seventh century by Quiricus, Bishop of Barcelona, friend and correspondent of St. Ildephonsus of Toledo and of Tajo, Bishop of Saragossa. This hymn, identical with that of Prudentius (Peridstephanon, III) for the feast of St. Eulalia of Mérida (10 December, 304), was preserved in the Visigothic Church and has reached us through the Mozarabic Liturgy.”  See PICTURE of Saint Eulalia.
