Saint Margaret Clitherow.

English Martyr Saint Margaret Clitherow tells her story in this hour long presentation of her life in Elizabethan York, England.

In the historical context of Saint Margaret's time in history, the spiritual aspects of her faith bore fruit in her simple daily tasks, fulfilled in her intention of serving her fellow York citizens, sheltering hunted priests and making sure that her children received a proper Catholic education in a climate of Elizabethan hostility.  Her conflict with the Earl of Huntington, Queen Elizabeth I's cousin, culminated in a poignant and moving witness for the Catholic Church in England.  She is held up and remembered inspiringly for Christians today.
