POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 6, 2013 Page6 Saint Giles, Abbot by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari The life of Saint Giles is shrouded in mystery. Some accounts have him born in Athens Greece of noble par- ents butmost likely he was born in the first half of the 7th century in southeastern France. His early life is depicted in what is known as the Legenda Aurea (Golden Legend), in it we are told that Giles spent many years living as a hermit, it is be- lieved he lived near Arles in the region now known as Provence. Giles withdrew into the for- est of Nimes, France where he lived in isolation deriving his sustenance by foraging for food in the forest, it is believed he was a vegetar- ian. The saintly hermit slowly became known to the people in the area who held him in high esteem yet Giles rejected all honors. Legend tells us that his her- mitage was accidentally dis- covered by King Wamba's hunters who had pursued a deer to its place of refuge. An arrow shot at the deer wounded the saint instead, who afterwards became a patron of cripples. The king, who by legend was Wamba, ascended the throne of the Visigoth in the year 672. Wamba came to hold Giles in high esteem as a result of his humility and sanctity and built him a monastery in a valley today known as Saint-Gilles-du-Gard, which he placed under the Benedic- tine rule. Here Giles died iri the:early part of the 8th cen- tury, by now his reputation for sanctity and miracles was well established. In later years the monas- tery became a popular stop- ping-off point for pilgrims making the 500 mile walk through France and Spain on their way to Compostela de Santiago in Spain to pay homage to Saint James, one of the twelve apostles who traveled to Spain. His re- mains are buried in a crypt in the cathedral. In England, many ancient churches and hospitals were dedicated to Giles, a district of the city of Brussels is named after him. In Ger- many, Giles was included among a group of saints known as the 14 Holy Helpers, a popular group of saints to whom people prayed, especially for recov- ery from disease and for strength at the hour of death. Devotion to the "Holy Helpers" was especially strong in parts of Germany and in Hungary and Sweden. Such devotion made his popular- ity Spread. Gile's 'was soon invoked as the patron of the poor and the disabled. His feast day is celebrated on September 1st. iiiiiiii ililiiiiiiii!iiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiii{iiiiiiiiii!i CEMETERY CREMATORY 500 Canterbury Street 7"he Respectful Way,,, Boston, MA 02131 617.524.1036 Serving the Italian Community www.stmichaelcemetery.com for Over 100 Years!
