Saint of the Day, Oct. 26

 |  NCR Today

October 26th is the feast of St. Alfred the Great!

Alfred found learning dead
and he restored it.
Education neglected
and he revived it.
The laws powerless,
and he gave them force.
The Church debased,
and he raised it.
The land ravaged by a fearful enemy,
from which he delivered it.
Alfred's name will live as long
as mankind shall respect the past.

--Inscription on the Statue to Alfred the Great in Wantage
