Story & Symbolism: In 1079 Stanislaus was accused of treason. The royal court found him guilty and sentenced him to dismemberment. Following the execution of Stanislaus, King Bolesław was forced to flee to Hungary. These events have remained a matter of controversy between those Polish historians who believe Stanislaus was part of a Bohemian-German plot designed to remove Bolesław and replace him with Władysław, and those who describe the execution as a contemptible act of revenge against a saintly bishop who had excommunicated a cruel, licentious king.
Saint Stanislaus Kostka is recognized today as the patron of those suffering from broken bones. His feast day is November 13th.
