March 26 - Saint Ludger


He was devoted to the evangelization of the region of Germany. The methods that had been used by Emperor Charlemagne to subdue the region were not very evangelical. He would bring Christianity by force, and the people would rebel against him and against Christianity. Thanks to the preachers who knew how to point out the errors of these tactics and proclaim true Christianity, the region was truly Christianized. In 795 Ludger erected a monastery around which the city of Münster was built. St. Ludger built churches and schools, and founded new parishes.
