How Did Saint Grace Die?

The Catholic saint Saint Grace was the sister of Saints Maria and Bernard. She was originally Muslim but later became Catholic.

Saint Grace struggled to convert their brother Almanzor to the Catholic faith with the assistance of her brother and sister. They wanted him to realise that living a Muslim lifestyle was the wrong choice and that the Catholic church could help him find salvation.

Their fourth sibling was steadfastly devoted to his Muslim customs and had no desire to convert. He turned his family over to the law and chose his religion over his family’s blood. Saint Grace was executed by the military authority in 1180, and her feast day is the first day of June.

The father of Grace, her brothers and her sister was a Muslim Caliph. He was a higher authority in the Muslim church and had access to almost everything his family required to support the religion.

When the majority of his children concluded that Catholicism was the best course of action, his position as a higher power in a church caused him to suffer great embarrassment. The children became Catholic, but the family never got back together.
