Today is the Feast of Blessed Yolanda of Poland. A Poor Clare who was also the niece of another Franciscan saint, St. Elizabeth of Hungary. Blessed Yolanda was born a princess and went on to have a family, but after the death of her husband and marriage of her children, she followed the calling to help serve the poor and orphans in becoming a Poor Clare. Blessed Yolanda is attributed with miracles at her grave even to this day. May God give us all the mercy and strength to serve those in most need.
Blessed Yolanda, Pray for Us.
