The Story of Saint Lubin

Saint Leobinus' parents were peasants, living in unstable conditions at the beginning of the Dark Ages. He spent his childhood working in the fields and dodging barbarians. God stirred up in his heart a thirst for study. He yearned to be able to read, to dip into the Sacred Scriptures, to scour the thoughts of history’s great minds, to enlighten his own understanding with the learning acquired with so much effort by others. His parents couldn’t teach him, so he went to the nearest monastery and asked for instruction. The monks took him in. At night they taught him; during the day he worked for them. He used to stay up late studying by candlelight. (That annoyed the monks, who had to get up in the wee hours to pray – in those days monks used dormitories instead of separate cells, so if one was up with a candle, the light would flicker for all to see. Leobinus hooded the candle and kept studying.)
Eventually, he discovered his own vocation to become a monk himself. He followed this vocation. Early on he was captured by renegade soldiers during a war between the Franks and Burgundians and tortured to reveal where the monks of his monastery kept their “treasure”. He stayed silent, and the soldiers, thinking they had drowned him, left him for dead. Recovering, he was ordained a priest, made Abbot, and eventually consecrated bishop of Chartres, where he instituted notable reforms and participated in the two great sixth-century councils of the Church in France (at Orleans and Paris). He had the gift of healing and performed a number of miracles before dying in his old age.
God had a plan for this peasant boy – lots of projects and activities for him to be involved in. But he needed knowledge and mental discipline in order to carry them out.
