Patron Saints for September

Czech Republic / Wenceslaus, 907–929, Feast Day: September 28

Influenced by his Christian grandmother, Ludmila, Wenceslaus inherited the throne of Bohemia (located within the Czech Republic) and opened international relations with other Christian countries. He was so devout that he grew the grapes for the Communion wine and prepared the bread for the Eucharist. After he was murdered by his brother outside the doors of the church, he became a national hero.
