Today is the Feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland. Saint Margaret, pray for us.

Saint Margaret of Scotland, was an English princess and a Scottish queen. As the author, George Scott-Moncrieff said in his mini-biography of her: “..a medieval queen hardly seems a person relevant as exemplar to…other saints such as Saint Theresa or of Saint Bernadette…but a queenly lady-bountiful seems to belong rather to some fairy-tale existence quite out of fashion, somebody to be confined in an ivory-tower of escape..”  However, in these days of uncertainty, a Saint like Margaret can help us a lot. Read the rest of this reflection, here.
