Saint Wenceslaus of Bohemia was the Duke of Bohemia. His daughter was baptized on her wedding day, though apparently she never took her faith seriously. Wenceslaus was murdered by his brother, Boleslaus, at the door of a church for political reasons. He was still listed as a martyr because the politics arose from his faith. Many miracles were reported at his tomb and his memorial is also Statehood Day in the Czech Republic. Saint Wenceslaus of Bohemia is the patron saint of brewers and Bohemia.
O God, who taught the Martyr St Wenceslaus to place the heavenly Kingdom before an earthly one, grant through his prayers that, denying ourselves, we may hold fast to you with all our heart. Through Christ our Lord, amen.
