St. Felix of Valois (1127-1212)
At an early age, Felix renounced all his possessions to live a life of prayer and contemplation in a forest. There he was joined by Saint John of Matha, with whom he founded the Order of Trinitarians in order to raise money for the ransom of Christians held as slaves by the Moors of Spain and Northern Africa. He worked in France, where he looked after his congregation until his death.

Reflections from the Saints

Withdraw your heart from the world before God takes your body from it.
– Bl. John of Avila
