Saint Gerard of Brogne by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Saint Gerard was born at Staves in the county of Namur, in Belgium, about the year 895. He was born into a noble family and brought up in a military atmosphere. He was the son of Stance of Lower Austria. Amid the countless privi- leges of his noble class Gerard felt a calling to reli- gious life. About 917, the Count of Namur charged him with a mission to Robert, younger brother of Eudes, King of France; while in France he allowed his retinue to reside at Paris, while he went to live at the Abbey of St. Denis. It was during his stay at Saint Denis that he discov- ered his calling to monastic life as a result of his obser- vance of the holy lives of the monks. It was at the conclu- sion of his mission, with the consent of the Count and Bishop Stephen, his mater- nal uncle, Gerard returned to St. Denis, joined the Benedictines, abandoned his noble birthright and took the religious habit, and after eleven years was ordained priest. After his ordination, Gerard requested and was granted the right to return to Belgium in order to found a new abbey on his own estate of Brogne for his countrymen who desired to be monks. He served as abbot for twenty-two years. It was during his years as abbot that he was sum- moned by the Archbishop of Cambrai who requested that Gerard should also direct the community of St. Ghislain in Hainault. Here he also established a monastery and instituted the strictest monastic disci- pline. It was here that Gerard discovered what was to be- come his life's work. Gradu- ally over the course of the next 20 years he became superior of eighteen other abbeys situated in the re- gions of Flanders, Lorraine and Champagne. It was as a result of his efforts that the Order of St. Benedict was soon completely restored throughout this region. Gerard, feeling the weight of his years and the effects of illness, and after forty years of monastic reform, selected abbots to replace him in the various commu- nities he once headed, and retired to his community at Brogne. Before passing away, he paid a Final visit to all the communities which he had reorganized. He died at Brogne on October 3, 959 where his body remains preserved. OCCHIO NON VEDE, CUORE NON DUOLE.
