St. Ladislaus — King June 27

St. Ladislaus was distinguished for his chastity, his meekness and his piety. His life in the palace was austere; he was frugal and abstemious, but most liberal to the Church and the poor.

Also the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

The Lord made him honorable, and defended him from his enemies, and kept him safe from those that lay in wait for him, and gave him perpetual glory. — Responsory

The Imitation of Christ
Keep thy resolution firm, and thy intention upright, toward God.
This king ruled an enormous kingdom wisely, but he ruled also the private kingdom of his own soul.
What will be the advantage of counting your victories by so many acres added to your domain, if you have not mastered your own soul and saved it for your King?
He that ruleth his spirit is better than he that taketh cities.
