Saint Joseph Cafasso

(1811-1860)

Jesus Christ, in His infinite wisdom, used the words and idioms that were in use among those whom He addressed. You should do likewise.

Saint-Savin lived a few centuries earlier. According to the authors, between 5th and IXème century; many uncertainties still remain on the exact date. What is certain, it is that it was one of the first Christians to have evangelise the valley of Lavedan, after a passage to the monastery of Ligugé.
Of Spanish origin, it leaves very to follow Christ and to announce the Gospel. It is established as a hermit in the mountain above the village to the locality “Pouy-Winder”. It will carry out a life of prayer to it, contemplation and austerities during thirteen years, according to the tradition.

To its death, its body will be gone down again to the village of Bencer - old name of Saint-Savin to be venerated there. Today the tomb of Savin saint, of Romance origin, is the principal furnace bridge of this church. On each side of this sarcophagus, two large tables painted on wood and dated from XVème century, illustrate in a very alive way the life of the saint. They evoke its miracles and testify to the enthusiasm of a whole people for that which will become patron saint of this valley.

"Be good, love the Lord, pray for those who do not know Him. What a great grace it is to know God!"
