Book of Saints – Hubert of Tongres

[Saint Hubert of Liege]Article

(Saint) Bishop (November 3) (8th century) Said to have been a nobleman of Aquitaine, employed at the Court of Pepin of Heristal. While hunting, a sport of which he was extremely fond, he received the grace of conversion. He then placed himself under the care of Saint Lambert, the Martyr-Bishop of Maestricht, who ordained him priest, and whose successor he became. He translated Saint Lambert’s relics and See to Liege (A.D. 727). Having converted many idolaters to the Faith and wrought several miracles, Saint Hubert died in that same year. His relics were enshrined in the ninth century in the Abbey called after him in the Ardennes. Saint Hubert is venerated as Patron Saint of hunters.
