St. Charbel

St. Charbel Makhlouf was a Maronite monk from Lebanon.

Born to a poor family, he spent his childhood herding cattle.

St. Charbel felt called to serve the Lord as a priest and entered the Lebanese Maronite Order of monks in 1851. He was ordained a priest eight years later.

St. Charbel loved the Mass and the Eucharist. He was especially devoted to Mary, who he spoke of often.

In his later life, St. Charbel became a hermit, dedicating his life to prayer, fasting, manual labor, and penance. Many people came to visit him, seeking his guidance and prayers.
