June 10 St. Margaret Clitherow, the Pearl of York

Saint Margaret Clitherow was the wife of a butcher and mother of 3 children. She lived in York in the north of England. She read the Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary daily in Latin. When her book was confiscated, she still retained in memory the prayer book in Latin. During the persecution of 1586, a door was put upon her, with heavy weights on top, that crushed her to death. She was martyred during the reign of evil Queen Bess. The Catholic New Testament was published in English at Rheims in 1582 Anno Domini.

She is the example of the ideal wife and mother. St. Margaret Clitherow, ora pro nobis, Deum.

Today is Day 8 in the Novena to the Holy Ghost, which ends on Pentecost Sunday.
