Blessed Peter the Hermit

Blessed Peter, pray for us!

Blessed Peter, pray for us!

A renowned hermit and founder. Originally a soldier, he is said in tradition to have become a hermit in the Holy Land before returning to the West to help preach the First Crusade throughout France, Italy, and Germany. He then embarked upon the crusade as a soldier and took part in the siege of Antioch and the capture of Jerusalem in 1099. Going home, he once more devoted himelf to a spiritual life, founding the monastery of Neufmoutier, in Flanders. While termed Blessed, he was never officially beatified.

 

REFLECTION:

Do we really give importance and value to our Christian faith? The Lord sometimes calls us to really profess our Faith even to loss our lives.

PRAYER:

O God, who gives strength to Your saints help us we pray through the intercession of Blessed Peter, Your servant, that by his prayers and supplications we may be able to learn and do Your Will through Christ our Lord. Amen.
