St Casimir, 1458-84

St Casimir, Prince of Poland, was born at Krakow. After an early experience of war he later refused to take up arms against any Christian country. He refused to marry a daughter of Emperor Frederick III, prefering a life of celibacy, devotion and austerity. He died of tuberculosis at the age of 26 and was buried at Vilna. Miracles were soon reported at his tomb and he was canonised by Leo X in 1521. In the 16th and 17th centuries his supernatural help was claimed by the Lithuanians, whose patron he became in conflicts against the Russians. He was conspicuous for a firm faith and his veneration of the Holy Eucharist and the Blessed Virgin Mary.
