The Emperor Karl League of Prayer
Mother Vincentia Fauland was an Orsoline nun who was a mystic graced with the gift of the Stigmata. As a child, Archduke Karl resided in Sopron, Hungary and it was there that Mother Fauland heard about the young archduke. She prophesied that one day Karl would become Emperor of Austria and that he would suffer greatly. She asked for a prayer group to be formed in order to sustain him with the prayers and sacrifices of its members. The year was 1895.
Mother Fauland's prophesies would come true several years later. Karl suffered during his two year reign. Eventually, he was exiled in Madeira where he died prematurely in 1922. The prayer group initiated by Mother Fauland developed in The Emperor Karl League of Prayer for Peace among Nations and currently is present in dozens of countries.
Emperor Karl was beatified in 2004 by Pope Saint John Paul II. The League of Prayer continues the work Mother Vincentia began. It is dedicated toward advancing devotion to Blessed Karl and the Canonization Cause.
