REDACCION CENTRAL (ACI Prensa) - Es nieto de Carlomagno, y el ultimo del linaje del emperador Oton I y de la dinastia sajona. Tambien se le considera el mas grande apostol de la paz en los primeros 20 anos del siglo XI y uno de los mas destacados promotores de la civilizacion occidental, colaborando a la labor del Papado y de los monjes de Cluny.

Su santidad se fue cultivando desde pequeno al contar con una vasta familia religiosa. Su hermano Bruno fue Obispo, su hermana Brigida fue monja. Mientras que la otra hermana, Gisela, fue esposa de San Esteban, rey de Hungria.

San Enrique nacio el 6 de mayo del 973 y sus padres fueron Enrique II el Pendenciero, duque de Baviera, y Gisela, hija del duque Conrado de Borgona. Esta ultima lo confio desde muy joven a San Wolfgan, Obispo de Ratisbona, que formo su inteligencia y su voluntad con una esmerada educacion cristiana y solida piedad.

Tras la muerte de su padre heredo el ducado en el 995; y al morir su primo, el Emperador Oton III, sin dejar herederos, los principes electores juzgaron que ningun otro estaba mejor preparado para para ser rey Alemania que el. De esta forma fue elegido como soberano en 1002.

Doce anos mas tarde luego de consolidar sus fronteras sosteniendo campanas militares contra el Principado de Polonia; luchar contra los bizantinos; y restituir en el cargo al Papa Benedicto VIII; Enrique II fue coronado como emperador del Sacro Imperio Romano Germanico junto con su esposa Santa Cunegunda en la basilica de San Pedro, en Roma.

Enrique II era llamado ‽el piadoso" porque siempre busco extender la religion cristiana y el amor hacia Cristo.

Para conceder como esposa a su hermana Gisela al rey Esteban de Hungria, le puso como condicion a dicho mandatario que propagara el catolicismo por todo su reino, lo cual cumplio de forma admirable.

Por todas partes levantaba templos, construia conventos para religiosos y apoyaba a cuantos se dedicaban a evangelizar.

Murio repentinamente el 13 de julio de 1024 a los 51 anos y fue canonizado en el 1146 por el Papa Eugenio III. Pocos reyes tuvieron en vida tan buena fama, y muchos menos fueron venerados y gozaron del amor de sus subditos como el nieto de Carlomagno.

Feast of the Deacon St Vincent Calls the Church and her Deacons to Heroic Virtue

Image of Vincent was born in the Third Century in Huesca, Spain and born again to eternal life only four days into the fourth century. He lived in Saragossa where he served the holy Bishop Valerius as a Deacon.He was one of the scores of Christians who suffered brutal persecution under the evil Roman emperor named Diocletian. Diocletian is associated with the last of the ten persecutions of the nascent undivided Christian Church of the first millennium of our history.  Like many early deacons of the undivided Church such as Stephen, Lawrence and Ephrem, the hagiography which has been passed down through the Church records his holiness of life and heroic virtue. He lived the way he died, as a sign of the power of the Gospel and the truth of the presence of the Risen Jesus Christ in our midst.

Vincent was a man like us who encountered the same Risen Lord Jesus whom we have encountered. He struggled with the choices which always ... continue reading
