Saint Eric IX (Erik) was born to nobility yet kept his virtue by fasting and prayer. He was a father and servant to his people by codifying the laws called King Eric Laws (Code of Uppland). Eric defended his kingdom against a Finnish invasion, then persuaded St. Henry, Bishop of England to evangelize Finland. On the feast of the Ascension, anti-Christian nobles beheaded Eric after Mass. In 2014, at the Cathedral of Uppsala,  his reliquary was opened to do tests on his remains to learn more about him.
