August 25 – Saint Louis IX
His mother, Queen Blanche was a profound Catholic. She inspired in Louis devotion and faith. Louis was crowned king when he was only 12 years old, his mother governed until he turned 21. He was a very special king. He married Margaret and was very much so in love. They had eleven children and maintained daily prayer and Mass. They lived simple lives and were generous and just. They listened to the poor and underpriviledged, and had time for everything.
