Ask Koren

Your personal E-therapist, is in the house! By Janette Costello

Ask Koren Should

She Wait?

Dear Koren, A friend of mine was in love with a guy for about 2 years and he did something stupid and got arrested, charged and locked up. She’s been very depressed and also embarrassed. She asked my opinion about whether she should stay with him as he might be there for 3 years. Because of her job, it wouldn’t look good for her to be going to visit him there. What do you think?

she’s waiting for him and is supportive but she cannot visit. He might harbor some resentment, but hopefully he understands her position and that his actions have consequences. It will be hard to not see a loved one for 3 years, but if letters are allowed, then perhaps she can write him and send pictures and whatever else he needs. This will be a real challenge and a test for them both, Dear reader, but there are some instances where love does I’m sorry your friend is going through such conquer all. In this case, once released, he would a difficult time. It can’t be easy to see someone have to demonstrate to her that he is truly rewe love locked away: Our heart aches for them, morseful and intends to do better. we miss them, and we feel sorry for them. There might also be some feelings of betrayal and anger because we feel like the person should have considered us before taking certain actions. People we love make mistakes, and in the same way we want people to forgive and understand us, we should seek to understand and exercise forgiveness. That does’t mean we condone wrongdoing, just that we acknowledge that under certain circumstances, any of us can make a mistake. Whether or not she stays with him should be her choice based first on what he did and on the strength of their relationship. If what he did is a really heinous crime that could only be committed by an abusive person with no respect for others, then that speaks volumes about who he is. If he made a mistake or error in judgement, that’s different. If she decides that she wants to stay with him and be supportive, nothing is wrong with that. However, if her job could be in jeopardy because of visiting, then she needs to be able to send a message to him letting him know Limin’Times Entertainment Gude

Who was this Ursula person? Most readers will know that this Friday the 21st of October is a public holiday here in the beautiful BVI, but I suspect that not as many know why. The short answer is that we’re celebrating the feast day of St. Ursula, the patron saint of the Virgin Islands. The longer answer goes way back in history, all the way back to the 4th century, when a basilica was built to honor the memory of a group of girls martyred at Cologne. Who were these girls? Why and how were they killed? I bet it’s a fascinating story but the truth has been lost to history. In the absence of facts, several legends have cropped up to fill the vacuum that is their story, including one about a Christian princess from Britain named Ursula who, while traveling with 11,000 maids and ladies-in-waiting, was am-

bushed and slaughtered by pagan Huns. The legend eventually led to Ursula being named a saint associated with England, the city of Cologne, teachers, education and holy death. There is even an order of nuns named after her. The Ursulines, founded in the 1500s, are devoted to the education of young girls. Now you might ask how this particular martyr came to be connected with the VI. Blame Christopher Columbus, who evidently thought this cluster of islands was like the legendary saint and all her attendants, calling them Santa Úrsula y las Once Mil Vírgenes or las Virgenes, for short. If you want a visual of St. Ursula (other than the circa 1440 Stefan Lochner painting pictured at left), all you have to do is check out a BVI flag. The woman on the green field is St. Ursula carrying a lantern, and around her are 11 more lanterns to represent her 11,000 co-martyrs. While those of us who are glad to have the opportunity to squeeze another beach day into our calendar can be glad that St. Ursula’s Day looks like it won’t be leaving the BVI calendar of public holidays any time soon, it’s interesting ot note that we are probably the only place in the world that celebrates this saint with a day off. The Catholic Church removed her from its oficial calendar of saints in 1969 owing to a lack of historical evidence for the legendary martyr. 9
