Book of Saints – Margaret – 27 August


(Saint) Widow. (August 27) (14th century) A poor girl of a village near Ancona in Italy, who in her fifteenth year was married to a man who ill-treated her for many years. She bore with patience all that befell her, and after her husband’s death passed the rest of her days in prayer and hard work. She died A.D. 1395. Many miracles have since borne witness to the sanctity of her humble and hidden life.
