Saint of the Day

St. Medardus (456-545)
Medardus was one of the most honored bishops of his time in France. Many legends are told about him. One says that once, when he was a child, he was sheltered from the rain by a hovering eagle. Thus, he is a patron against bad weather.

Reflections from the Saints

O Lord, grant us that love which can never die, which will enkindle our lamps but not extinguish them, so that they may shine in us and bring light to others.
– St. Columba
