St. Margaret Clitherow was raised Anglican but converted to Catholicism about three years after her marriage. She was imprisoned many times for being Catholic, and was ultimately martyred for living her faith. "Living her faith" can be defined, in 16th-century England, as harboring priests (including her brother-in-law), supporting servants who were Catholic, and having children who became priests and nuns.
She's the patron of businesswomen, converts, and martyrs. And if you're harboring any priests, she's got your back. 😉
During her trial, St. Margaret refused to answer charges or plead guilty or not guilty. She would only say, "Having made no offense, I need no trial." This protected all in her household from being called as witnesses.
Margaret was 30 when she was pressed to death. 🙏St. Margaret Clitherow, inspire in us the love of Christ you had. May we find courage in the Eucharist and the Passion as you did and show our love through the ultimate sacrifice, whatever that means in our lives. St. Margaret Clitherow, pray for us!😇 #catholic #saints #saintoftheday #prayer #pray #catholicsaints #prayer4today
