Lady Zdislava wanted that

Did she want me to read this post, then go here and find this article, so I would bring it to the attention of someone who will benefit from it?

Not likely, but who can say?

In this picture, the church is the one she paid for and snuck out at night to help build (and, by extension, the whole Church). The man represents the many poor and sick people she cared for, with such evident charity that, though she came from elsewhere and died young, her memory has been preserved for centuries, and will endure as long as the Church endures in Bohemia.
