Saint Jadwica - Feast Day June 8
She is the first female monarch of the Kingdom of Poland from October 16, 1384 until her death in July 17 1399.
She attended daily mass and was especially devoted to the Blessed Virgin.
She was beatified by John Paul II on August 8, 1986 and canonized on June 8, 1997.
Two miracles associated with Saint Jadwiga.
"Jadwiga's cross" was a large black crucifix hanging in the north aisle of Wawel Cathedral. Tradition has it that one day during her prayers the Christ on the cross spoke to her. Her relics lie beneath it to this day.
"Jadwiga's foot" is a tradition where she took a piece of jewelry from her footwear and gave it to a poor stonemason in need of assistance. After Jadwiga left the stonemason, her footprint remained in a stone. This imprint can still be seen in the Carmelite Church “Na Piasku” in Kraków, Poland.
The top of the stained glass window has the Polish phrase "Pod twoją obrone uciekamy sie", which translates to "We run to your protection"
