By Catholic News Service     3/29/2018

This humble Italian monk was raised with fine clothes and the best education available. Eventually he grew weary of keeping up appearances, sold his clothing, gave the money to the poor and set out for Rome in shabby garments. He befriended the hermit Martin and later joined a community of monks at Pomposa Abbey, where he became abbot. He was much sought after as a spiritual advisor and his devotion drew many followers. St. Peter Damian dedicated to St. Guy his book “The Way to the Perfection of Monks.”
