March 26 - Saint Ludger


He was a Dutch young man, the son of a nobleman. When he was still a young child, he asked his father to take him to be educated by Saint Gregory, the bishop of Utrecht. He studied hard and, when Gregory died, the new bishop asked Ludger to become a priest. He preached the gospel throughout the country, founded monasteries and built churches. Ludger became a Benedictine, but he was asked by Emperor Constantine to go an evangelize the North of Europe. He was ordained a bishop and, later he was falsely accused or corruption before the emperor.  Constantine was almost convinced of the calumny but, when he talked to Ludger, he was convinced of the goodness and holiness of the bishop.
