Bega of Bees, Saint, DVD
St. Bega of Bees
St. Bega was an Irish princess who fled her homeland in the night to escape a planned marriage. As she stood upon the seashore St. Bega implored of God a means to cross the Irish Sea to England. God heard her prayer and she cut a section of turf from the ground, placed it upon the sea and miraculously crossed to Cumbria where she lived as a hermit. Fearing the attack of pirates St. Bega made her way to the court of the Catholic King Oswald of Northumbria and received the veil from St. Aidan of Lindisfarne. Miracles occurred after her death and she has been remembered recently in secular novels, plays and paintings. Includes a prayer found recently in a 15th century book of hours to St. Bega. Packed with historical imagery, prayers, facts, devotions, sacred art, photographs and a costumed visual this is a good way to enjoy the life of one of our early Saints.
