Santa Valdetrude – sposa e monaca – 9 aprile

Santa Valdetrude Sposa, monaca

9 aprile

Una santa chiamata dalla vocazione matrimoniale alla consacrazione a Dio.

Storia: A Mons in Neustria, nel territorio dell’odierno Belgio, santa Valtrude, che fu sorella di santa Aldegonda, moglie di san Vincenzo Madelgario e madre di quattro santi; imitando il marito, si consacrò a Dio e prese l’abito monastico nel cenobio da lei stessa fondato.

Nella storia della cristianità non mancano, i casi di intere famiglie elevate agli onori degli altari, come per esempio la santa oggi festeggiata, Valdetrude (in francese Waudru), che è venerata addirittura sia con la sua famiglia d’origine che con quella da lei creta: sono infatti considerati santi i suoi genitori Valdeberto e Bertilla, sua sorella Aldegonda, suo marito Vincenzo Maldegario ed i loro quattro figli Landerico, vescovo di Parigi, Dentellino, morto ancora giovane, Aldetrude, badessa Maubeuge, e Madelberta, anch’ella badessa del medesimo monastero.

Famiglia di condizioni abbastanza agiate, non appena i figli furono abbastanza grandi da provvedere a se stessi, i coniugi di comune accordo decisero di separarsi per meglio potersi dedicare al servizio di Dio nella vita religiosa. Madelgario intraprese allora la fondazione di un monastero presso Haumont, ove divenne monaco assumendo il nome religioso di Vincenzo. Sua moglie Valdetrude, invece, attese ancora due anni per poi ritirarsi dal mondo, andando a vivere in solitudine in una piccola abitazione. Fu invitata dalla sorella Aldegonda ad unirsi alla comunità di Maubeuge, ma ella ritenne di poter comunque condurre una vita ancor più austera rimanendo al di fuori dell’abbazia.

Con il passare del tempo, però, venne a tal punto disturbata dai visitatori che si recavano da lei in cerca di consiglio, da giungere ad intraprendere anch’essa la fondazione di un proprio convento presso Chateaulieu, al centro dell’attuale città di Mons in Belgio.

Divenne così celebre per le sue numerose opere di misericordia e le vennero attribuite parecchie guarigioni miracolose, sia in vita che in morte. Rese l’anima a Dio verso l’anno 688, ormai vedova da undici anni. Il suo culto si sviluppo a partire almeno dal IX secolo, periodo in cui un monaco di Mons redasse una sua Vita in latino, ed il suo nome nel 1679 fu introdotto nel Martyrologium Romanum, ove compare ancora oggi in data 9 aprile. Santa Valdetrude è la patrona di Mons, città che custodisce anche le sue reliquie in una chiesa del XV secolo, costruita vicino all’autentica Chateaulieu.

    I have been surfing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view,
    if all webmasters and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful
    than ever before.

    You made some decent points there. I looked on the internet
    for additional information about the issue and found most people will
    go along with your views on this site.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this,
    such as you wrote the guide in it or something. I feel that you just
    can do with some p.c. to drive the message house a bit,
    but instead of that, that is excellent blog. A great
    read. I’ll certainly be back.

  • minecraft Posted 4 settembre 2018 12:19 pm

    Excellent post however , I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this
    topic? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little
    bit further. Kudos!

    At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the best blogging
    platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using
    on your blog?

  • minecraft Posted 4 settembre 2018 1:30 pm

    helpful data to us, keep it up.

    Hey! Quick question that’s completely off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from
    my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.

    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

  • minecraft Posted 4 settembre 2018 2:00 pm

    I do not know if it’s just me or if everybody else encountering problems with your website.
    It appears like some of the written text within your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and
    let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had
    this happen before. Cheers

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need
    some guidance from an established blog. Is it tough to set
    up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

    Many thanks
