Feast of Saint Boniface Celebrated on June 5
The life of Saint Boniface is marked with determination and obedience, and he is known as the patron saint of Germany. As part of his work as a missionary, Saint Boniface was charged by Pope Gregory II to initiate a return to the traditions of the Roman Catholic Church by Germanic peoples who had brought the concepts of paganism to the faith. It was not an easy task for the Anglo Saxon priest, but Boniface, born Winfrid in Wessex in the 600s, was determined to bring converts to Christ. As part of his work to bring the Church of Germania back into the fold, Boniface worked with a largely illiterate and misinformed clergy and people who had paganized the tenets of the Christian church.

Saint Boniface is known for his act of announcing his intention to chop down the pagan god Donar’s sacred oak tree in the presence of a nervous crowd, who expected to see him killed by the angry god. Instead, he sent the tree to the ground, where it split into four parts, and then had the parts used to build a Christian chapel. His mission included the conversion of many Germanic peoples, the establishment of Benedictine monasteries and churches throughout Europe and, indeed, the founding of early Europe itself. He and 53 of his companions were martyred as they prepared converts for confirmation.
