Saint of the Day

June 21: Saint Leutfridis of La Croix

Saint Leutfridis was born into a noble and devout family—his brother is also acclaimed a saint—in Evreux, France, in the late seventh century. He became a teacher, then a Benedictine hermit, and then a founder of a new abbey. It’s said that when he was abbot, a fire started in the monastery; he prayed, and the building was saved.

After his death of natural causes on this date in the year 738, so many miracles were attributed to his intercession that his tomb at La Croix became a destination site for pilgrimages.

Saint Leutfridis, teach me to how to pray with trust.
