St Frideswide
Not in the Prayer Book kalendar but the legendary foundress of Oxford and a patroness of the consecrated life and of chastity in one’s state of life (much misunderstood). Lacking the fortitude to do real Matins I read a version from the Little Office (in Latin* not this modern English) and then Anglican Breviary Lauds for her feast-day today.

*Vulgate not Pius XII.
