St. Giles — Abbot September 1

St. Giles was a holy hermit who founded a monastery.

He glorified him in the sight of kings, and gave him commandments in the sight of His people, and showed him His glory. — Epistle: Ecclesiasticus 45

The Imitation of Christ
It is no small matter to lose or gain the kingdom of God.
St. Giles tended his garden and said his prayers and loved his neighbors — and became a saint. Write your English, study your science, etc., as well as you can. Try to realize that those things are a duty.
Let each bit of work you do today at home or in school, be done so perfectly that it may be shown to your credit in heaven.
Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, let it be done in the name of Christ Jesus. — St. Paul
