March 16: Saint Dentlin


We don’t know much about Saint Dentlin because he had such a short life. He was born in either France or Belgium, and it was said he loved Jesus from birth. Dentlin had a wonderful gift for telling people about Jesus and the joys of being a Christian. He died of an illness when he was only 7 years old, and miracles were reported by people who prayed at his gravesite. His dad, his mom and all three of his siblings also became saints.


Saint Dentlin shows us that we don’t have to be an important person, or a well-educated person, or a well-trained preacher to share the Good News about Jesus. Dentlin could do it as a young child, and so can we. So today, look for an opportunity to share what you heard or learned at Mass this morning with somebody else.

Saint Dentlin, pray for us!
