November 7 - Saint Willibrord


Born in England during the 7th Century and educated at an Irish monastery. Willibrord wished to evangelize in other countries which are now parts of Europe and he baptized many into the faith. In one of the countries, the pagan tribes did not permit the killing of any animal. The king then ordered to kill a Christian to calm the wrath of the gods. Willibrord, nevertheless, continued to preach until an old age. Willibrord was always happy, wise, and devout, full of love for the people.

How can you evangelize to those close to you?
