    Hedvig (called Jadwiga in Polish) was born in the winter of 1373-1374 (Fr. Przybyszewski postulates a birth date of Feb 15, 1374, based on negotiations relating to her coming of age).

He further commented that “To give the best of oneself in sports is also a call to aspire to holiness.” One excerpt of the document highlights that: Families, coaches and fans all have a share in this mission.
