About St. Matilda

Matilda, Queen of Germany and Queen of England, was the daughter of Count Dietrich of Westphalia and Reinhild of Denmark, and the wife of King Henry I of England. She was born in the year 895 and nurtured by her grandmother, the Abbess of the Eufurt monastery.

In the year 909, Matilda married Henry the Fowler, the son of Duke Otto of Saxony. In the year 912, he succeeded his father as Duke, and in 919, he succeeded King Conrad I to the German throne.

Count Dietrich of Westphalia and Reinhild of Denmark had a daughter named Matilda. Mechtildis and Maud were some of her other names. Her grandmother, the Abbess of the Eufurt Convent, nurtured her.

In the year 909, Matilda married Henry the Fowler, the son of Duke Otto of Saxony. In the year 912, he succeeded his father as Duke, and in 919, he succeeded King Conrad I to the German throne. Her religiosity and charity works were well-known. In the year 936, she was widowed, and she supported her son Henry’s claim to his father’s kingdom.

She convinced her son Otto (the Great) to name Henry Duke of Bavaria after he staged an unsuccessful insurrection.

St. Matilda was well-known for her generous giving. Both Otto and Henry chastised her for what they saw as her lavish charitable contributions. She resigned her estate to her sons and retired to her rural house as a result.

Through Otto’s wife, Edith’s intervention, she was later summoned to the court. Matilda was greeted warmly upon her return to the palace, and her sons begged her forgiveness.

Both Otto and Henry chastised her for what they saw as her lavish charitable activities. She gave her children her inheritance and retreated to her country home, but Otto’s wife, Edith, intervened and she was summoned to the court.

She devoted her final years to the construction of numerous churches, convents, and monasteries. She spent the last years of her life at the monastery she had founded at Nordhausen. On March 14, she died at the convent in Quedlinburg and was buried alongside her late husband, Henry. Matilda was well-known for her kindness throughout the realm.

She used to educate the uninitiated, console the sick, and pay visits to detainees. Otto misled her after Henry’s death when he falsely accused her of money mismanagement. On March 14, she died at the abbey of Quedlinburg and was buried alongside Henry. The 14th of March is her feast day.

O VIRGO POTENS, O OMNIPOTENTIA SUPPLEX

O Mary, Powerful Virgin, nothing is impossible for you. Through this same power with which you graced the Father Almighty, I beg you, help me in my present needs. Since you can help me, do not abandon me. You are the Advocate for helpless causes! It seems like the glory of God, your honour and the good of my soul are demanding the concession of this favour. If, as I think, this grace agrees with the very loveable and holy will of God, I ask you, O All Powerful Supplicant, intercede for me with your Son, who can refuse you nothing. I ask you again, in the name of the limitless power that the Heavenly Father gave you and in honour of which I say to you, together with St Matilda to whom you revealed the practice of the “Three Hail Marys”
. Hail Mary

I. O SEDES SAPIENTIAE

Sovereign Virgin, you are called Throne of Wisdom, because uncreated wisdom, the Word of God, resided in you. This adorable Son communicated to you all the amplitude of His divine knowledge to the extent that the most perfect creature could receive it. You know the magnitude of my misery and the need I have for your help. Trusting in your highest wisdom, I abandon myself entirely into your hands so that you use all your strength and sweetness for the greater glory of God and the greater good of my soul. Therefore, please come to my aid, using the means you know to be best for attaining this end. O Mary, Mother of the Divine Wisdom, please, I beg you, obtain for me the precious grace that I ask for. I ask this in the name of the same incomparable wisdom with which the Word, your Son, enlightened you, and in honour of which I say, together with St Anthony of Padua and St Leonardo de Porto Mauricio, the most zealous preachers of your “Three Hail Marys”. Hail Mary

II. O MATER MISERICORDIAE

O kind and tender Mother, Mother of Mercy, truly Mother of All Mercy, I come to ask you to help me with your compassionate kindness. The greater my misery, the greater ought to be your compassion. I well know that I absolutely do not deserve the precious grace I ask of you because I have saddened you so many times by offending your Divine Son. But I was guilty, very guilty. I am sincerely sorry to have hurt the tender Heart of Jesus and yours too. Besides, are you not, as you revealed to one of your servants, St Bridget, the “Mother of Repentant Sinners”? So then, forgive my past ingratitude and obtain for me from the Divine Mercy the grace that I ask for through your intercession, considering only your merciful goodness and the glory it gives to God and to you.

III. O CLEMENS, O PIA, O DULCIS VIRGO MARIA

No one ever invoked you in vain, “O clement, O merciful, O sweet Virgin Mary”. Please help me. I ask this through that merciful goodness with which the Holy Spirit crowned you for our good and in whose honour I pray to you the “Three Hail Marys”, according to the example of St Alphonsus of Liguori, apostle of your mercy: Hail Mary
