Saints

St. Bruno

Bruno was encouraged by his bishop to begin a monastery, and so he founded the Carthusian order. Carthusians spend nearly all of their days in silent prayer and work. Bruno’s brothers copied the Bible by hand. Hearing of Bruno’s skill at organization, Pope Urban II wanted to honor him with a position in the Vatican. Bruno respectfully declined and remained with his Carthusian brothers until his death.
