First of all, you should know that this saint belonged to German royalty, since she was born in this country, specifically in Bavaria. Her father was the Duke of Croatia and Dalmatia. Her aunt was Saint Elizabeth of Hungary.
When she was twelve years old, she married Duke Henry of Silesia, who belonged to the Polish royal family. She thus became the duchess of this town and, later, its patron saint.
Despite their young age, Santa Eduvigis and Enrique, constituted a marriage characterized by happy moments, in which they had seven children. This family was very religious and helped the poor a lot, they even donated their wealth to the church and the dispossessed.
During the year 1002, Hedwig asks her husband to build a convent of the Cistercian Order of Trzebnica, when her husband dies and she is widowed, she decides to move permanently to this place.
According to their biographers, in addition to this convent they built monasteries and hospitals. On the other hand, it is said that while on a pilgrimage to Rome, Hedwig stopped for a while in Bad Zell, obtaining water that managed to heal the sick. In commemoration of this fact, a fountain was built that bears his name.
Her charitable and pious life made her worthy of the appreciation of the people so that after her death she is venerated by many believers, who attest to countless miracles performed by this saint.
He died on October 15, 1243 and his remains are buried in the aforementioned convent. In the year 1267 he was canonized by Pope Clement IV. She is the patron saint of Silesia of Andechs, and of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Wrocław and the Roman Catholic Diocese of Görlitz.
Other details of his life
Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, erected the Saint Hedwig Cathedral in Berlin in 1773 so that all the Catholics who emigrated from Silesia would have a space to venerate her.
According to popular belief, the prayer to Santa Eduvigi is very useful for those who want to obtain a home and for people who are deprived of liberty.
The festivities in honor of this saint are celebrated by the Catholic Church on October 16 of each year, the date on which the image is taken in procession through the streets and, in addition, other commemorative activities are carried out.
