King and Confessor

From the throne of England he shone with the virtues of a great King and a great Saint. He was splendid in erecting and equipping temples, and by his inexhaustible charity he was called the father of the orphans and the poor. In his marriage he kept virginity along with his virgin wife. He died a holy death on January 5, 1066.
