St. Charbel Makhluf
St. Charbel Makhluf (1828 – 1898) was a Maronite monk from Lebanon. Maronites are a group of Christians with a long history in the Middle East. At a young age, St. Charbel became a shepherd to his family’s flock after his father died. His pious family upbringing taught him to love God greatly. Later, he joined a monastery and became a priest. Finally he became a hermit, living by himself in prayer and fasting. After his death, many healings and miracles occurred through his intercession. St. Charbel’s feast day is on 24 July.
