St. Dominic of Silos (1000-1073)
Dominic was an eleventh century Spanish shepherd boy. He learned to love to pray while tending to sheep. Soon he became a monk, and restored an old run-down monastery to glory. He cured the sick, and raised funds to ransom Christian prisoners from the Moors.

Reflections from the Saints

My Lord and my God, take from me everything that distances me from you. My Lord and my God, give me everything that brings me closer to you. My Lord and my God, detach me from myself to give my all to you.
– St. Nicholas of Flue
