      St. Wilfrida of Wilton, Abbess
      Mother of Saint Edith and Abbess of Wilton,
      Who Repented of a Sinful Youth and Was
      Tonsured by St Ethelwold of Winchester
      (also known as Wulfritha, Wulfthryth)
      -------------------------------------------------
      Died c. 988. Commemorated also 9 September. Saint Wilfrida was a novice
      at the convent of Wilton when she caught the eye of the King Saint Edgar
      the Peaceful, who had been rejected by her cousin, Saint Wulfhilda. She
      became his concubine and bore his daughter, Saint Edith of Wilton, out
      of wedlock. Shortly after Edith's birth, she returned to Wilton with her
      child. There she took the veil at the hands of Saint Ethelwold. As a
      nun, and later as abbess, Wilfrida did penance and made ample amends for
      the irregularity of her liaison with Edgar (Benedictines, Farmer).


      St. Theneva of Glasgow
      (Thenu, Enoch, Denw),
      ----------------------------------------------
      Mother of Saint Kentigern Mungo
      See 18 July
