Hail, St. Stephen of Hungary, model of Catholic manhood

St. Stephen of Hungary

Yesterday was the feast of St. Stephen of Hungary.  The Office of Readings for the Feast includes a letter from St. Stephen to his son, admonishing the young man to be "strong," "humble," "gentle" and "honorable."  Wise advice to young men of all times and places.   Fr. Alexander Lucie-Smith has more here.

We confess a sentimental attachment to St. Stephen of Hungary, as Filius was baptized in St. Stephen of Hungary Church in Manhattan.

St. Stephen of Hungary, pray for us.
