Why a dove?
St. Ida was a noblewoman in the age of Charlemagne who devoted her life to serving the poor, prayer, and acts of service after she became a widow at an early age. It is said she daily filled a stone coffin with food for the poor and she is usually depicted with a coffin, church, or dove. The dove may represent her protection of the Saxons in a war between the Saxons and Franks.
