Hubert was a famous medieval saint from the area we now call Belgium. He lived from about 656 to 727. In the early years of his adulthood, he was a courtesan living a worldly life. More than anything else, he loved to hunt.
On one Good Friday, when everybody else was at church, he was out hunting. He was chasing a magnificent stag. As he got close, the animal stopped and turned. Hubert was astounded to see a crucifix between its antlers. Legend has it, Hubert heard a voice telling him to turn to the Lord. He dismounted from his horse and knelt before the vision, saying, "Lord, what wouldst Thou have me do?" He eventually became a priest and then a bishop. He is the patron saint of hunters. His feast day is May 30.
