Saints are generally seen as humble people but do you know of “saints” that had wealth, status, power and used this to carry out great deeds?

Here is a list of wealthy saints that I lifted from http://bit.ly/1X0Q99s/millio… and added to:
  • St. Helena, mother of Constentine
  • St. Thomas More, martyr, attorney and former bestie of King Henry VIII
  • St. Katharine Drexel
  • St. Edward the Confessor, King of England
  • St. Henry, Holy Roman Emperor
  • Bl. Charles of Austria, Emperor of Austro-Hungarian Empire
  • St. Louis (King of France)
  • St. Elizabeth of Hungry, Princess
  • St Margaret of Scotland, Queen
  • Bl. Pier Giorgio Frassati
  • St. Matthew
  • St. Homobonus
  • St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra (AKA Santa Claus)
  • St. Jude
  • Sts. Louis Martin and Marie-Azélie Guérin, successful watchmaker and lacemaker, parents of St. Thérèse of Lisieux.
I'm sure there're more but many saints are not officially proclaimed by the Church and thus known only to God and the Heavenly Host. We can only pray the same for Oskar Schindler and all of the departed.
