DDSB Saint of the Day for Dec 16

St. Adelaide of Burgundy lived in the 10th century and was rescued from a political imprisonment by a priest by the name of Martin - who happened to be good with both spade and rod and reel.

She is commemorated on this day in Loehe's calendar and in the Daily Divine Service Book she receives the common propers for a Holy Woman Not a Martyr. As a lesser observance ("Simple" class), St. Adelaide's Divine Service may appropriately be replaced by a Votive Divine Service for the day of the week or other occasion as listed in DDSB.
