Saint Richard the King


The 7th of February is the Feast of Saint Richard the King, he is also known as St. Richard of Wessex, St. Richard the Pilgrim, St. Richard the Saxon, St. Richard of Swabia, and St. Ricarius.

Saint Richard the King lived in 720 AD and was a Saxon king born in Wessex, England. Three of his children are saints, Saint Willibald, Saint Winnebald and Saint Walburga. His brother in law, Saint Boniface is also a saint. Saint Willibald was ill as a child and he was near his deathbed. Saint Richard wrapped him a blanket and placed him at the foot of a large crucifix where the child recovered. Saint Willibald, when he was a grown man, journeyed with his father, Saint Richard, and brother to go on a missionary pilgrimage to Rome and the Holy Land. Saint Richard, renounced his royal estate before his journey while his daughter entered a convent. In Italy, Saint Richard became ill and died, and was buried in Tuscany in the Church of San Frediano. Many miracles happened at his tomb. Some of his relics were sent to Eichstatt, Germany, where Winnebald, his son later became a Bishop.

Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
