Today the church celebrates The Feast of Saint Margaret of Scotland. Margaret who died in 1093, originally came from Hungary and married King Malcolm III of Scotland. She was the mother of eight, and was known for her legendary love for the poor. She is the patroness of Scotland.
Let us pray. O God, who made Saint Margaret of Scotland wonderful in her outstanding charity towards the poor, grant through her intercession and example, we may reflect among all humanity the image of Your divine goodness. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever, Amen.
