Obscure Saint of the Day: St. Bertha

Time to stuff that brain with obscure Catholic saint knowledge so you can wow your friends at this weekend's big parties!

Today is the feast of St. Bertha!

Bertha married a Pagan, but once he died in battle, she devoted herself to raising her son as a Christian. 

She founded several hospices for the poor, and after being spiritually moved during a trip to Rome, she and her son gave away all of their possessions and dedicated themselves to praying as hermits. 

St. Bertha, pray for us!
