April 11 -Saint Stanislaus –
Patron Saint of Poland -
Born July 26, 1030,
Stanislaus is among those who dared to denounce corruption in high places. He followed in the footsteps of Jesus himself, who pointed out the moral corruption in the religious leadership of his day. Known for his outspokenness, he aimed his attacks at the evils of the peasantry and the king, especially the unjust wars and immoral acts of King Boleslaus II. The king first excused himself, then made a show of penance, then relapsed into his old ways. Stanislaus continued his open opposition in spite of charges of treason and threats of death, finally excommunicating the king.
On Divine Mercy Sunday Alexis from the Fitzpatrick House received the sacraments of Baptism and First Eucharist.
We are all so very happy and proud of him!
