A Story of Saint John Gualbert by Brother Ernest, C.S.C.

share on Facebook


John was born in the late 900's in Florence, Italy. His parents were wealthy and they had their children (John and Hugo) taught at home by a teacher hired by their father. After his brother was murdered he sought to find the killer and get revenge for his murder. It was through God's grace that when John found this man and he pleaded for his life that John realized this was not what God wanted of him. On his way home he stopped at a monastery to give thanks for God's grace and beg forgiveness for his own sins. Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Saint John Gualbert by remembering to grant forgiveness and also beg for forgiveness ourselves, as we pray for God's grace as this is most important in all our lives.
