1. St Giles lived in the 7th century. Originally from Greece,he went to France to live in a cave as a hermit. He was sustained by prayer and the milk of a deer. One day the Gothic king Wamba pursued St Giles’ animal companion #StGiles #pets Image
2. as part of his hunting expedition. The deer fled towards St Giles’ cave, and thus the king’s arrow aimed at the deer hit St Giles instead. As compensation, King Wamba gave St Giles a piece of land in the Provence, on which St Giles founded a monastery.

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that the revered intercession of StGiles
may bring us heavenly aid,
just as his wonderful life
is an example of humility for all.
Through our Lord Jesus..

St Giles is one of the #FourteenHolyHelpers and patron against contagious diseases.
