Saint of the Day

Queen St. Hedwig (1371-1399)
Upon her father's death, Hedwig became Queen of Poland at the age of eleven. For political reasons, she agreed to marry a non-Christian prince, who later converted. She was noted for her charity to all, but especially the sick and poor.

Reflections from the Saints

Every day He humbles Himself just as He did when from His heavenly throne into the Virgin's womb; every day He comes to us and lets us see Him in lowliness, when He descends from the bosom of the Father into the hands of the priest at the altar.
– St. Francis of Assisi

Life in Christ: Catechism #2152

A person commits perjury when he makes a promise under oath with no intention of keeping it, or when after promising on oath he does not keep it. Perjury is a grave lack of respect for the Lord of all speech. Pledging oneself by oath to commit an evil deed is contrary to the holiness of the divine name.
