September 17 - Saint Lambert

 

Lambert studied with St. Theodard, the bishop of Maestricht. When St. Theodard was murdered for defending the church’s possessions, Lambert was appointed bishop although he was just 21 years old. He ruled the diocese with prudence, generosity, kindness, and compassion. For political reasons he was exiled from the diocese and he dedicated the rest of his life to prayer.
