Blessed Memorial of St Wenceslaus - 28 September

Blessed Memorial of St Wenceslaus - 28 September

“Good King Wenceslaus” was able to incarnate his Christianity in a world filled with political unrest.   While we are often victims of violence of a different sort, we can easily identify with his struggle to bring harmony to society.   The call to become involved in social change and in political activity is addressed to Christians;  the values of the gospel are sorely needed today, the example of St Wenceslaus is still an inspiration to us all.  St Wenceslaus, pray for us!#mypic

PRAYER – Holy God, help me to amend my life constantly and be sincerely converted to You.   Let me seek Your interests rather than my own and be ever more closely united with You.

The purpose of the mask was probably to prevent the wearer from being recognised and haunted by the spirits of those he kills, a superstition that died out with…
