Today’s Saint is Abbot Gumbert of Ansbach whose life is difficult to separate from fact and fiction. Legend has it that he was a wealthy man who gave up all that he had in exchange for a life poverty as a monk. He is said to have founded St. Mary’s Abbey around 786. It is difficult if not impossible to gain more information on Gumbert. It is best to follow his example of remembering that all that we have is worthless compared to all that we gain in Christ.
