Book of Saints – Bruno – 17 May


BRUNO (Saint) Bishop (May 17) (11th century) Matilda, mother of this Saint, was a niece of Saint Bruno or Boniface, the martyred Apostle of Prussia and Russia. Her son became Bishop of Wurzburg (Herbipolis), and one of the most erudite scholars of his time. He wrote informing Commentaries on Holy Scripture. He was the adviser of Emperors, but, what is much more, earned the title of “Father of the poor.” Having built the Cathedral of Wurzburg, he died (A.D. 1045) from the effects of an accident. He is renowned for miracles wrought in life and after death.
