Saint of the Day

King St. Oswald of Northumbria (605-642)
While exiled, Oswald converted. He reconquered his country from the Britons, erecting on the battlefield a wooden cross that proved to be miraculous. He built up a great kingdom, and with the aid of St. Aidan introduced Christianity, founding many churches and monasteries. He died in battle against a pagan king.

Reflections from the Saints
