(May 8, 1828 – December 24, 1898)

Saint Charbel was born on May 8th, 1828, from a modest Maronite family in Bekaa Kafra, a village in North Lebanon. He entered the order of Lebanese monks in 1851 and was ordained a priest in 1859.  Later, he withdrew to the hermitage of Saints Peter and Paul to spend 23 years in prayer, fasting, manual labor, and penance until, on Christmas Eve of the year 1898, he piously gave back his soul to God at the age of 70.  After his death, many graces and bodily cures have been obtained through his intercession.  His Holiness Paul VI canonized him in 1977.
