    I'm delighted to have read this article on the holy and humble life of St. Henry. It is truly a life in which a great emperor could see his God's calling first and put it well before his exalted status in civil life. Both the emperor and his empress were declared saints of the Catholic Church. St Henry you are the patron saint the handicapped. I recommend to you my beloved grandson, for his full recovery. And a life of great success in overcoming his fragile X condition.
