In remembrance of Countess Matilda the Great (+ 24 July 1115), who led her outnumbered armies in defense of the Reform Papacy, against the Holy Roman Emperor who sought to keep the Church under dynastic control. Amid today’s idolatry of State power, may we also strive in God’s grace for the kingship of Christ and the liberty of His Church.
