The Poor, The Sick
<p>Not much is known about St. Adalgott, or the year he was born.&nbsp; He died in 1165.&nbsp; We known he was a twelfth century Monk.&nbsp; He entered Clairvaux and was eventually appointed as Abbot of Disentis, Switzerland.&nbsp; While at Clairvaux, he grew in his faith, and developed a real charism for helping the poor and the sick.&nbsp; Clairvaux was a Benedictine Monastery, where St. Bernard trained his successors. &nbsp;</p> <p>He was eventually appointed as the Abbot of the Benedictines in Disentis, Switzerland, where he really became well known for his care of the sick and poor.&nbsp; Eventually he was appointed Bishop of Chur, and as Bishop, conducted an apostolate for the suffering of the region.&nbsp; We also know that he founded a hospital in 1150, to better care for the sick.&nbsp; Many call upon his intercession for their needs in regard to being sick or financial problems. &nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-size: medium;"><strong>Prayer to St. Adalgott</strong></span></p> <p>Dearest St. Adalgott, who tirelessly helped the poor and the sick, intercede on my behalf, for a resolution to my current needs.&nbsp; (Here state your intentions).&nbsp; With your example of helping the poor and sick, and using your Title and Position to better help them, then too, help me to have my needs met.&nbsp; I entrust these needs to your intercession, and humbly rely on the Divine Providence of God, to meet my needs.&nbsp; All according to the Divine Will of God. &nbsp;</p>
