Book of Saints – Emeric


EMERIC (Saint) (November 4) (11th century) The son of Saint Stephen, the first Christian King of Hungary. He was remarkable for his piety and for his austere virtue, and was favoured by Almighty God with many supernatural gifts. He died still a youth (A.D. 1031), and the many miracles which took place at his tomb, together with the insistency of the Hungarian people, led to his canonisation (A.D. 1083).
