June 5 – Saint Boniface
At the age of five Boniface wanted to become a monk but his parents kept him at home until he turned seven. He entered the Benedictine Order when he was just 14 years old. He studied a lot, and above all, Boniface was committed to holiness and to the work of evangelization. He preached throughout Holland and Germany, city by city, town by town, founding convents, and speaking of Christ to rich and poor. St. Boniface organized councils, and if all this weren’t enough, he was martyred for his faith.
