|Saint Hubert and the stag, artist unknown|
According to Saints.SQPN
"Hubert was passionately devoted to hunting. While chasing a stag on a Good Friday morning, he received a vision of a crucifix between the animal’s antlers. A voice warned him, “Hubert, unless you turn to the Lord, and lead a holy life, you shall quickly go down to hell.” It was a conversion experience for Hubert.
When his wife died, Hubert renounced all his worldy positions, titles and wealth, handed his patrimony, and the care of his son, to his brother, and studied for the priesthood."
I'll revisit St. Hubert at a later date to discuss his achievements & the military orders named for him. In the mean time, I leave you with some of my favorite images of him.
