St. Margaret of Scotland, whose feast is celebrated November 16, was the granddaughter of an English king. She was born in Hungary due to her father’s exile there as a child. Her early years were spent in the Hungarian court, among pious and observant Catholic royals. St. Margaret’s piety was evident in the considerable amount of time she spent in prayer. The saint also illustrated the importance of silence and solitude when she would often retreat to the cloister of a cave for occasions of prayer and quiet reflection. Saint Margaret was a voracious reader, particularly of spiritual material. Read her complete biography online.
