Feast of St. Margaret of Scotland

St. Margaret of Scotland pray for us
“St. Margaret (c. 1045-1093) was the great-niece of St. Edward the Confessor. She was a Saxon princess, raised in Hungary in exile. Returning to England, she had to flee once again after the Battle of Hastings, to the court of Malcolm, the King of Scotland, whom she married shortly thereafter. She proved to be a model mother and exemplary queen who brought up her eight children in an atmosphere of great devotion and worked hard to improve the morality of her subjects.”
Let us pray for her to intercede for our families, especially for our children.

Merciful God,
you gave the holy Queen Margaret of Scotland 
great love for the poor.
Lend your ear to the intercessions 
of this holy woman and help us 
to live after her example so that your goodness
 and mercy becomes visible in today’s world.
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.
