    "Nothing in this world can separate me from the Love of Christ"
    This phrase came back to my mind after reading her story today. Her love for Christ is really incredible and I really admire her. Thanks for sharing with me. God bless you all.

    The story gave no historical veracity for the sainthood of Julia. No places apart from a very vague "South Africa". No details of her beautitude by the Roman Catholic Church. Nothing to say this is more than a story.

    My name is Julia and I was looking for a saint to do a report on and decided to look up my name. It is a sad but beautiful story and I will definitely be doing my report on my namesake.
