Then he worked hard to make others turn from their worldly ways and gave good example by selling all he had to give the money to the poor, St. Norbert also became die founder of a new Congregation for the spreading of the Faith.
Later, he was chosen bishop of the city of Magdeburg. He entered the city wearing very poor clothes and no shoes. The porter at the door of the bishop's house did not know him and refused to let him in. He told him to go join the other beggars!
"But he is our bishop!" shouted those who knew the Saint. The porter was amazed and very sorry. "Never mind, dear brother," said St. Norbert kindly, "you judge me more correctly than those who brought me here."
St. Norbert had to combat a heresy which denied that Jesus is really present in the Holy Eucharist. His beautiful words about Our Lord's presence in the Blessed Sacrament brought the people back to their holy Faith.
Let us go to receive Jesus in Holy Communion often—at least once a week. If we feel little love for the things of God, Jesus will make us warm with devotion. If we feel weak in spirit, He will make us strong. If we feel sad, He will console us.
