Reflection: Blessed Margaret of Castello (13th c.) is Patron of the Unwanted. When her parents, who were respected nobility, discovered at her birth that she was a badly deformed dwarf, hunchback, and blind, they refused to give her a name, locked her up in a small cell, and eventually abandoned her while traveling.
Had we know what Margaret’s parents were doing to her, would we have spoken up?
Prayer: Blessed Margaret, pray that we may speak up for the unwanted.
