Local link to saint

To the editor:

We rejoice at two new saints. Maria Elizabeth Hesselblod from Sweden and Stanislaw of Jesus and Mary Papczynski (1631-1701) of Poland were canonized on June 5 in Rome.

The Marians in Stockbridge were founded by Saint Stanislaw in 1673. We have a local connection to a saint.
