St. Stanislaus was born in Poland.

As Bishop of Cracow he reproached King Boleslaw II for his dissolute life.

Boleslaw slew him during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in 1079 A.D.

Oremus (Let Us Pray):

O God, in Whose honor the glorious Bishop Stanislaus fell beneath the swords of wicked men; grant, we beseech Thee, that all who implore his aid may obtain the wholesome effect of their prayers. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, world without end. Amen.

Saint Stanislaus, pray for us.

Dear Jesus, Thank You for all the graces You bestowed upon Saint Stanislaus and upon all of Your Angels and Saints, and through the intercession of Blessed Stanislaus, Your Martyr and Bishop,  make us share in the heavenly remedy. Amen.

In Thy great mercy, forgive our sinfulness, heal our brokenness and renew our hearts so that we may be one with Thee. Amen.
