Feast Day of St. Wenceslaus

Today we recognize the saintly life of Good King Wenceslas. He was a duke, martyr, and patron of Bohemia. He died on September 28th, 935. He gained the thrown at age eighteen and was known to be a "virtuous" and "righteous" king...his demeanor was thought to be pious and carried a princely vigor. He gave generously to the poor and practiced his faith strictly as a "Good King" should.

To commemorate his feast day, we read the book "Good King Wenceslas," by John M. Neale

St. Wenceslas Pray for Us
