Ravens Identify Murderers

Rad Trad has a piece on St. Sergius and his Bear. No, the Bear is not going to claim to be the Forrest Gump of Bears, taking credit for every Bear companion. He simply remains silent on the issue. It is enough to be St. Corbinian's Bear without complicating things.

The Bear is reminded of St. Meinrad, who became a hermit in Switzerland, and whose name is lent to the monastery where the Bear is a very bad oblate.

The hospitable Saint was murdered, but he had fed ravens every day. Read how the ravens brought the fiends to justice.

And, if you wish, explore the monastery's delightful website.

  1. Well, this raven has thoroughly enjoyed being fed by your words these past months and I look forward to spending 2016 with you. Happy New Year!

    1. And I shall pray that you will be! I must admit, the rather somber and retrospective tone of the past couple posts has me a little worried...

Your comment will likely be posted after the Bear snuffles it. Please, no anonymous posts.
