Dear Marilyn,

 Read This to Find Out Wonderful Things About King Wenceslas!

         I find myself humming a lot, and my favorite song to sing to myself is "Good King Wenceslas." Because it's a tape going over and over in my mind any season of the year, I decided to find out more about it - and was I ever surprised when I found out the truth! We all know that he "looked out on the feast of Stephen" and that "the frost lay round about, deep and crisp and even." But the story has much more in it than that!

Put Your Feet in My Footsteps

           It was a rudely cold night, and Good King Wenceslas' page, Peter, and he opened the curtain at a palace dinner. They saw a very poor man, and they knew they had to do  something. They went out carrying food for the poor, even though the night was bitter and the wind was wild. The page could hardly stand it, but King Wenceslas said to him, "Put your feet in my footsteps, and you'll be warmed." The page walked where the king walked, and he was able to go on through the night. The two of them brought food and help and love to everyone, and through these acts of compassion, they were blessed.


Ye Shall Yourselves find Blessing

          Wenceslas of  Bohemia was greatly loved by his people even  though they didn't know about  his walk through the snow, and after his death he was declared a saint. At the end of the Good King Wenceslas song, there are two beautiful lines: "Ye who now will bless the poor, shall yourselves find blessing." Not only this, but if you continue to forge on, even in the illumined footsteps of another, you will make it through.

With love to you,
Marilyn Gordon
