St. Louis Proves Them Wrong

October 29, 2020

St. Louis, King of France, painting by the Master of Sardoal.

St. Louis, King of France, used to hear two Masses every Day, sometimes even three or four. Some of his courtiers murmured at this, but the King gave them a sharp reprimand, saying: “If I were to ask you to play, or to go hunting with me three or four times a day, you would find no time too long, and now you feel weary of staying in the church during one or two Masses for the honor of our Lord and Saviour.”

(Raivenius in Annal. 1270, No. 19).
