Book of Saints – Ceslas


CESLAS (Saint) (July 20) (13th century) A Polish Saint who received, together with Saint Hyacinth, the habit of the Order of Saint Dominic from the hands of the holy founder himself. He acted as Spiritual Director to the Duchess Saint Hedwige, besides rendering in other ways important services to the Church. The successful resistance of the citizens of Breslau in Silesia, where he resided, to the Mongols in their great invasion of 1240, is attributed to his prayers and miracles. He went to his reward in July, 1242.
