    MEMORIAL OF SHARBEL MAKHLŪF, PRIEST

He entered the Maronite monastery of St. Maro and was eventually granted permission to live as a hermit. Many sought his counsel over the years, but it wasn’t until his body was discovered incorrupt long after his death in 1898 that hundreds of miracles were attributed to him.
