Our letter for today’s saint is the letter “K.” This letter, being less common, leads to today’s saint, who lived in Poland, Saint Kinga:
Saint Kinga of Poland (also known as Cunegunda; Polish: Święta Kinga, Hungarian: Szent Kinga) (5 March 1224 – 24 July 1292) is a saint in the Catholic Church and patroness of Poland and Lithuania.
She was a fascinating woman. A few facts about her:
- She was born a Princess- her father was the King of Hungary
- Both of her sisters were saints as well
- She took part in a Josephite marriage with Prince Bolislaw the Chaste
- After her husband’s death she became a contemplative and wouldn’t let anyone refer to her past station in life as a Princess
