A Prayer to St. Margaret of Scotland, Patroness of Mothers & Learning
God provides us with another wonderful example of a Catholic life to model with St. Margaret. She is the Patroness of Mothers, large families, learning and was able to elevate those around her to greater faith and reform. She thought of others and was especially generous to the poor. A beautiful pictorial of her life can be found at this blog.
St. Margaret of Scotland holds a spot in our hearts and lives. In a parish bearing her name, 2 of my oldest children received their First Holy Communions. There, my two "littles" were baptized. Today, on her feast day, I ask for her intercession of prayers before the Face of God.
Dear Saint Margaret of Scotland pray for us
to be generous to the needy,
to be zealous reformers and teachers of the Roman Catholic faith,
to speak with the "salt of wisdom,"
to be "filled with good thoughts,"
so that we can become "a pattern of a virtuous life" to those around us.
