Willibald of Eichstätt, Bishop

Today we commemorate Willibald. Willibald was born in 704.When he was three years old he became very sick. His parents prayed to God and promised that if Willibald recovered they would consecrate him to divine service. Willibald recovered and was sent to a monastary at the age of five where he stayed until the age of 17. He was known for his piety and eventually became a bishop who was known for his compassion towards the suffering.
