December 19 – Blessed Urban V


He was a French Benedictine monk, who had many responsibilities. Urban was named Pope during the time of exile of popes in Avignon. He decided to return to Rome and found many difficulties, but the people of Rome were joyful. He repaired many churches, helped many poor people, and encouraged everyone to be passionate and to renovate their devotion. He was known as the “light of the world and path to the truth.”

What light can you offer others by telling them the truth, counseling or teaching?
