Learn about an amazing saint
Abbot, Confessor, Doctor of the Church (1091-1153).
In all history no other man so dominated his times and influenced its people. He prophesied, cast out devils, worked miracles, destroyed heresy, single-handedly healed a schism, launched a crusade, advised popes, guided councils, ended a pogrom, accomplished every mission given him--yet was always sickly, took no joy in the world or pride in his successes, and ever longed to return to his cell. A story to make you weep.
