Saint Fiacre

Also known as

Fefvre, Fevre, Fiachrach, Fiacrius, Fiaker, Fiachra

Profile

Brother of Saint Syra of Troyes. Raised in an Irish monastery, which in the 7th century were great repositories of learning, including the use of healing herbs, a skill studied by Fiacre. His knowledge and holiness caused followers to flock to him, which destroyed the holy isolation he sought.

Fleeing to France, he established a hermitage in a cave near a spring, and was given land for his hermitage by Saint Faro of Meaux, who was bishop at the time. Fiacre asked for land for a garden for food and healing herbs. The bishop said Fiacre could have as much land as he could entrench in one day. The next morning Fiacre walked around the perimeter of the land he wanted, dragged his spade behind him. Wherever the spade touched, trees were toppled, bushes uprooted, and the soil was entrenched. A local woman heard of this, and claimed sorcery was involved, but the bishop decided it was a miracle. This garden, miraculously obtained, became a place of pilgrimage for centuries for those seeking healing.

Fiacre had the gift of healing by laying on his hands; blindness, polypus, and fevers are mentioned by the old records as being cured by his touch; he was especially effective against a type of tumour or fistula later known as "le fic de S. Fiacre".

Fiacre's connection to cab drivers is because the Hotel de Saint Fiacre in Paris, France rented carriages. People who had no idea who Fiacre was referred to the cabs as Fiacre cabs, and eventually just as fiacres. Those who drove them assumed Fiacre as their patron.

Died

Blessed Alfredo Ildefonso Schuster

Also known as

Alfredo Ludovico Luigi Schuster

Profile

Educated at Saint-Paul-Outside-the-Walls abbey, Rome, Italy from age 11. Entered the Cassinese Benedictine monastic noviate in 1896, taking the name Ildefonso. Made his formal monastic confession on 13 November 1900. Ordained on 19 March 1904 in Rome.

Novice master of his house from 1908 to 1916. Prior of the abbey from 1916 to 1918. Procurator general of the Congregation of Monte Cassino from 1914 to 1929. Abbot-ordinary of abbey nullius of Saint-Paul-Outside-the-Walls on 6 April 1918. President of the Pontifical Oriental Institute from 7 October 1919 to 4 July 1922, and teacher at several colleges and institutes. Consultor to the Sacred Congregation of Rites in the sections for the Liturgy and for the Causes of Saints. Censor of the Academy of Sacred Liturgy. President of the Commission for Sacred Art Apostolic Visitor to seminaries of Lombardy and Calabria. Appointed Archbishop of Milan on 26 June 1929 by Pope Pius XI. Created cardinal on 15 July 1929. Papal legate to several events and congresses in Europe. Participated in the conclave of 1939. Founded the Institute of Amrosian Chant and Sacred Music and the Ambrosianeum and Didascaleion cultural centres, and wrote for the daily publication L'Italia.

There was some controversy during the investigation of his Cause as some claimed he was sympathetic to Fascism. Evidence, however, shows that he denounced Fascism's meddling with the youth organization Catholic Action, refused to participate in ceremonies involving Mussolini, and condemned racist legislation. The cardinal was primarily concerned with the spiritual well-being of his flock, the physical needs of the poor, assistance to newly married couples in order to create strong marriages, and with the administration of the Archdiocese.

Blessed Eustáquio van Lieshout

Also known as

• Eustachius van Lieshout
• Hubertus van Lieshout
• Humberto van Lieshout

Profile

Eighth of eleven children in a deeply Catholic farm family. Baptized on the day he was born. A popular, cheerful child, he early felt a call to the priesthood. Neither his family nor his teachers thought he could handle the academic part of the vocation, but he studied in Gemert, and did well enough. After reading a biography of Father Damien de Veuster, Humberto decided to join the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary. He entered the novitiate in Tremeloo, Belgium on 23 December 1913, and was given the name Eustáquio; he made his permanent vows in 1918, and was ordained on 10 August 1919.

Assistant novice master in the Netherlands for five years. Notable minister to his charges and his parishioners. Feeling a call to be a missionary, he was sent to Spain in December 1924 to learn spanish; in 1925 he was sent to Portuguese speaking Brazil. Worked ten years in Agua Suja, six in Poá, and two in Belo Horizonte. Noted for his ministry to the poor and the sick. Had the gift of healing through the intercession of Saint Joseph. His reputation for holiness and miracles spread; so many people trekked to the towns to see him that the civil government complained. In 1942 his superiors transferred him to prevent him becoming the focus of the faithful instead of the faith itself, but thousands continued to seek him out.

Blessed María Rafols-Bruna

Profile

Born to a working class family. After completing her education at a boarding school in Barcelona, Spain, she joined a group of twelve young women under the direction of Father Juan Bonal, who administered Our Lady of Grace Hospital in Zaragoza, Spain. The small community was dedicated to serving the most helpless: the sick, the mentally ill, abandoned children, and the disabled, and became the Sisters of Charity of Saint Anne.

At age of 23 Maria was appointed superior of the group, a position that often put her in conflict with hospital employees. During the Napoleonic wars, she worked in the bombed ruins to save the sick and children. She even ventured into the enemy camp to plead with the French general for help with the sick and wounded. She worked tirelessly for the approval of her small community, and in 1825 they took their first public vows. Victim of slander, she was imprisoned during the Carlist War, but later released.
