Saint Winibald

Wunibald, as depicted in Pontifikale Gundekarianum (de), 11th century

The 18th of December is the feast day of Saint Winibald.

Saint Winebald lived between 701 and 761. He was a Saxon prince and his family was a holy and royal family of England. His parents were both saints; Saint Richard the king was his father and Saint Wunna of Wessex was his mother. His brother, Saint Willibald and his sister, Saint Walburga, and his uncle Saint Boniface were also saints. He made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with his father and brother and stayed for many years in Rome. After this, he was asked by Saint Boniface, his uncle, to help him evangelise Germany. Saint Winebald became a priest and started his work as a missionary in Germany, Holland, France, Austria, Belgium and Luxembourg. He left many churches and monasteries under the Rule of Saint Benedict. He became known as helping to lay the foundations of Christianity in Europe and his tomb was a place of pilgrimage after he died.

Dear children! I am with you all these years to lead you to the way of salvation. Return to my Son; return to prayer and fasting. Little children, permit God to speak to your heart, because Satan is reigning and wants to destroy your lives and the earth on which you walk. Be courageous and decide for holiness. You will see conversion in your hearts and families; prayer will be heard; God will hear your cries and give you peace. I am with you and am blessing you all with my motherly blessing. Thank you for having responded to my call.
