Wenceslaus is the main patron saint of the Czech Republic. The peoples of the Czech Republic and Slovakia have always venerated their great martyr, and in the past they have certainly shared deeply in his sufferings. Every year, at the anniversary of Saint Wenceslaus' death, they pray that the future will be happy and holy for these nations and for their sons and daughters who have made their home in Australia.
