Saint Bruno was the founder of the Carthusians, (by retiring to a hermitage with 6 companions in 1084). They are noted for their strict tradition and the austere rule of St. Benedict’s contemplative life. He was born to a prominent family, taught for 25 years in Reims, appointed Chancellor of the archdiocese at 45 and supported Pope Gregory VII and Pope Urban II in the fight against decadent clergy, even helping remove his own scandalous archbishop. He died giving a profession of faith to the Catholic Church’s Sacraments especially the True Presence.
