St Margaret, Queen of Scotland - click to read

Today, according to Traditional Liturgical Calendar is the "Feast of St Margaret of Scotland (c.1045-93), who was a queen to King Malcolm of Scotland. St Margaret was canonized in the year 1250 by Pope Innocent IV on account of her personal holiness and fidelity to the Church. She would personally serve orphans and the poor every day before she herself would eat, and would rise at midnight to attend church services every night.

This gorgeous precious marble statue of the saint is in the Jesuit church at Farm Street in London."
