Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg


The 31st of October is the feast day of Saint Wolfgang of Regensburg. He is the patron saint of apoplexy; carpenters and wood carvers; paralysis; Regensburg, Germany; stomach diseases; and strokes.

Saint Wolfgang lived between 934 till 994 A.D. He is also known as the Great Almoner and was the Bishop of Regensburg, Bavaria. He reformed the monasteries and convents in his diocese and was known for his teaching abilities, oratory skill and charity towards the poor. He also helped evangelise the Magyars in today’s Hungary. Near the end of his life, he retreated to what is now called Saint Wolfgang’s Lake in Austria and built a church and hermitage there. He chose the spot to build his cell by praying and throwing his axe into the wilderness and building it where it landed. A town gradually grew around the saint’s hermitage.

March 25, 2020 Message to Marija

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.
