November 20 – Saint Edmund

A young English king, who took King David as his role model during David’s greatest moments as a monarch, in other words, when he was loyal to God and of pure heart. King Edmund governed with wisdom, compassion and kindness toward everyone. When a tribe of barbarians invade England, the king was captured. Edmund was presented with the opportunity of saving himself if he rejected his Christian beliefs. He gave up his life and was martyred.
