You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working, and just so, you learn to love by loving. All those who think to learn in any other way deceive themselves - Saint Francis de Sales

Matilda was devoted to prayer and almsgiving, built many churches, founded and supported numerous monasteries. She was humble, pious, and generous. She was known for her great charity and was always ready to help the oppressed and unfortunate. Lord, help me learn how to love and to live out your gospel of love like Saint Matilda did.
