#SaintoftheDay St. Margaret of Hungary (1242–1271) was the daughter of King Bela IV of Hungary, and niece of the famed St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Her royal paren...ts made a vow to God that if Hungary was saved from the Mongol invasion they would dedicate Margaret to religion. God heard their prayer and the country was saved. The king and queen then entrusted four-year-old Margaret to be raised and educated in a Dominican convent. At the age of ten Margaret was transferred to the Convent of the Blessed Virgin founded by her parents, built on an island her parents named after her. Margaret spent the rest of her life there, dedicating herself to prayer and severe penances. She opposed her father's attempts to arrange her political marriage with the King of Bohemia, even though her suitor obtained a dispensation from the pope to release her from her religious vows so that she could enter into matrimony. Margaret made her solemn vows as a Dominican nun at the age of eighteen. Although a beautiful princess, she took the most menial tasks in the convent and dedicated her life to serving the poor and sick. She was considered a saint during her life and after her death. Many miracles, especially the curing of illnesses, were attributed to her intercession. She died at the age of 28. Her feast day is January 18. #MorningOffering
Join the Catholic Apostolate Center in commemorating the #FeastDay of St. Sebastian | St. Sebastian is the patron saint of athletes because of his energetic eva...ngelization. He was a soldier in the Roman army who shared his faith with his fellow soldiers and converted many of them before he was sentenced to death by the Emperor Diocletian. Sebastian was shot with arrows and left to die alone, however, a Christian woman found him and nursed him back to health. When he was healthy enough to share the Gospel again, St. Sebastian went back to Emperor Diocletian to share the Gospel with him. Diocletian sentenced Sebastian to be beaten to death again. Sebastian did not let death or fear of death stop him from sharing Christ with others. http://ow.ly/gORv30hvpDv
Join the Catholic Apostolate Center in commemorating the #FeastDay of St. Anthony, Abbot | St. Anthony of Egypt is the founder of modern day monasticism. He sol...d almost everything he had, leaving enough for his younger sister to live a good life. He went into the desert and became a hermit. After almost 30 years of living in solitude, he came back to provide guidance to a growing community of hermits, thus marking the beginning of modern day monasticism. Many people sought to hear St. Anthony's spiritual advice, including Emperor Constantine. �
"Do not be astonished if an emperor writes to us, for he is a man, but rather: wonder that God wrote the Law for men, and has spoken to us through his own Son." (St. Anthony)
#SaintoftheDay St. Arnold Janssen (1837–1909) was born in Germany to a large Catholic family. He was a man of simple faith who studied theology, entered the pri...esthood, and served as a school teacher. He had a profound devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which awakened in him an increasing desire for missionary work. This led him to found The Little Messenger of the Sacred Heart, a monthly magazine sharing news of the Church's missionary activities and encouraging German Catholics to do more to help the missions. This was during a time of anti-Catholic persecution in Germany, and many priests were expelled from the country. Arnold suggested that these expelled priests serve in the missions, and for this purpose he founded the Society of the Divine Word, known as the Divine Word Missionaries, a religious congregation of missionary priests and lay brothers. He also founded two Orders of religious sisters associated with this missionary activity. Today more than 6,000 Divine Word Missionaries are active in 63 countries. St. Arnold was canonized in 2003 by Pope St. John Paul II. His feast day is celebrated on January 15. #MorningOffering
