St. Leonard of Noblac (6th century)
Leonard lived a life of austerity, sanctification, and preaching. Desiring more seclusion than a monastery could offer, he withdrew into the forest and lived on herbs, wild fruits, and spring water. There he built an oratory, which he left only for journeys to churches. He had great compassion for prisoners, many of whom he converted.

Reflections from the Saints

Go forth in peace, for you have followed the good road. Go forth without fear, for he who created you has made you holy, has always protected you, and loves you as a mother. Blessed be you, my God, for having created me.
– St. Clare of Assisi
