June 6: saint of the day, name day


The Saint of the day 6 June is San Norberto, which name day is celebrated and other saints who are celebrated on this date.

San Norberto

In 1121 Norberto founded a monastic order that lent his work above all to spread the Gospel, thus anticipating the advent of Premonstratensian mendicant orders.

This name originates from the French valley of Prémontré, located near Laon, where the saint had stayed with some of his companions.

Born in Xanten in Germany between 1080 and 1085, Norberto made worldly life in the first part of his existence, until an event occurred that convinced him to change his way of life.

In fact he was almost struck by lightning, but only lost his senses, so he decided to consecrate himself to God who had saved him by becoming a priest.

After founding the order, which quickly spread to Europe and Palestine, he was appointed bishop of Magdeburg starting in 1126.

Died in 1134, he was made a saint in 1582.
