FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: King Saint Ladislaus (László) was born around 1046 in Poland. From his father, King Béla I of Hungary, he inherited the chivalric virtues and principles of government, and from his mother, Princess Richeza of Poland, he inherited a strong Catholic faith and deep religious faith. He came to the Hungarian throne in 1077. He successfully completed the process of Christianizing the country, which had been initiated by St. Stephen and other apostolic missionaries. He founded bishoprics in Nagyvárad and Zagreb, established several Benedictine monasteries, and held a synod in the town of Szabolcs in 1092. Its measures effectively raised the religious and disciplinary standards of the clergy and the people. He defeated and expelled the Kuns and other pagan tribes who invaded Hungary. He embraced the suffering and the unfortunate with paternal love. He died near Nitra on 29 July 1095, his remains buried in the cathedral of Nagyvárad (presently in Transylvania). Miracles took place at his tomb. These, as well as his virtues and merits, were examined by Pope Celestine III, who was canonized by his envoy, Cardinal Gregory, at Nagyvárad on 27 June 1192. Her daughter, St. Piroska, became Byzantine Empress under the name of Irene.

Why was 27 June the day of the canonization? As indicated above, after his death, his tomb was visited by crowds, not only by those seeking healing and consolation, but also by the litigants in the dispute. News of the miraculous healings spread quickly. Confidence in the relics of the holy king grew; it became customary to decide important lawsuits at his tomb and to swear an oath before the altar of Laszlo. The national synod of 1134 was held here, and on one occasion the trial of the Bishop of Zagreb was decided here. It was not long before the Church took official action. In 1192, at the request of Béla III, Pope Celestine III sent cardinals to review the miracles at the tomb of Ladislaus in Nagyvárad. The Italian miracle examiners were convinced by a celestial sign: at noon on 27 June, a bright star lit up above the cathedral in Nagyvárad and hovered there for two hours.

PRAYER TO KING ST. LADISLAUS (feastday: June 27): Hail, good King, all praiseworthy St. Ladislaus! Glory be to you, our gracious and mighty patron, our kind protector! O Ladislaus, confessor of the Lord, strengthen thy people by thy intercession, that the grace of thy blessedness may soften us who are weighed down by the weight of sins, that we may obtain, under thy guidance, eternal reward. St. Ladislaus, King, the steady hope of thy people, look to the piety of the nation that seeks thee, and intercede for us, for the salvation of us all. Amen
