St. Stephen of Hungary (c. 975 – 15 August 1038), also known as King Stephen I, was the first Christian king of Hungary. Born in 975, he ascended to the throne in 1000 AD and played a crucial role in the Christianization of Hungary. Stephen worked tirelessly to establish the Catholic Church in his kingdom, fostering its growth and promoting its influence. He implemented laws that upheld justice, supported the poor, and protected the Church’s interests. Saint Stephen’s reign brought stability and prosperity to Hungary, and he is venerated as the patron saint of the country. His feast day is celebrated on August 16th, and he is remembered as a model of Christian leadership, devotion to the faith, and his commitment to building a strong and just Christian nation.
