St. Zdislava became a Lay Dominican. Lay Dominicans can be married. She did a lot of work to help the poor. She gave them food and medicine. She taught religion to the maids' children and visited inmates. When the Tartar army attacked she opened the castle as a shelter. Zdislava donated her bed to a homeless man. Her Husband Havel was going to bed but he did not find a homeless man he found the body of tortured Jesus. The vision changed his heart. Together they created churches and convents. They built the Basilica and abby of St. Zdislava and St. Laurent. It was burned down but rebuilt.
At the age of 15, St. Zdislava married Havel, Count of Lemberk. Havel was a night but became king in 1249. He was rude, mean, and cruel. She moved to his
castle which is the Castle of Lemberg and they had four kids who were Havel, Margaret, Jaroslav, and Zdislav.
Married Life
Early Life
St. Zdislava lived in the 13th century. She was born in 1220 in Križanov, Ždár nad Sázavou, Vysocina kraj. It is currently Czech Republic. Her father was a soldier and a ruler and she grew up in the Castle of Križanov . She is one of seven. When she was seven she escaped from her castle to become a hermit in the woods but she came back home to her castle.
St. Zdisilava died of an illness on January 1, 1252. She was only 32 years old. She is buried in the St. Zdislava and St. Laurent Basilica.
Right after Zdislava death in 1252, she appeared to her husband in a red dress and gave him a cloth. She raised five dead people back to life, cured leprosy, and healed a man from being blind.
Faithful God, by her married life and works of charity you taught Saint Zdislava to pursue the way of perfection. By her prayers, may family life be strengthened and be a witness to Christian virtue. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
- General Calendar of the Order of Preachers
