Saint of the Day

St. William of Vercelli (1085-1142)
Born a noble but orphaned, William was raised by relatives. When he was 14, he made a pilgrimage and dedicated his life to God. He became a hermit and travelled to Italy, where he gained many followers. When the hermits complained about his strict rule, William left the order and founded several monasteries.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2305

Earthly peace is the image and fruit of the peace of Christ, the messianic "Prince of Peace." By the blood of his Cross, "in his own person he killed the hostility," he reconciled men with God and made his Church the sacrament of the unity of the human race and of its union with God. "He is our peace." He has declared: "Blessed are the peacemakers."
