Saint Audrey was an English princess, who took a vow of perpetual virginity at an early age, even though she consented to be married two times for diplomatic reasons. Her first husband died after 3 years and the 2nd husband (Egfrid) was a boy when they married. After 12 years, Egfrid wanted to consummate the marriage. The bishop of York, St.Wilfrid, upheld Audrey’s claim of virginity and helped her separate from him. The marriage was annulled, and Audrey took the veil at the Monastery of Ely. She eventually died of an enormous and unsightly tumor on her neck, which she gratefully accepted as Divine retribution for all the necklaces she had worn in her early years. Her hand is incorrupt to this day.
