St. Sharbel


Life of Saint Sharbel

Saint Sharbel, also known as Saint Charbel was born to a poor family on May 8, 1828 in Bekaa Kafra, Lebanon.  He was named Youssef Antoun Makhlouf.  Saint Sharbel’s father died when Youssef was only three years old.  He then went to live with his uncle.

Saint Sharbel Entered Monastery

Saint Sharbel entered the Monastery of Our Lady of Lebanon when he was twenty-three years old.  He stayed there for two years and then in 1853, he went to St. Maron Monsastery.  He took his vows under the name of Charbel who was a martyr of the second century.

Saint Sharbel

Saint Sharbel studied theology and philosophy at the Seminary of Kfifan for the next four years.  He was ordained after six years of study and then returned to St. Maron.

Saint Sharbel Became a Hermit

Saint Sharbel lived at St. Maron Monastery for sixteen years.  He followed all his monastic duties and dedicated his life to Christ.

Saint Sharbel asked to live as a hermit in the hills near the monastery and was given permission in 1875.  He lived alone, in silence for twenty-three years.  Saint Sarbel died a hermit who had dedicated his life to fasting, prayer, and sacrifice.

The Villagers Kept Vigil

The villagers kept a vigil on the night that Saint Sharbel died.  They spoke to one another saying, "If we are suffering so much for only one night in this severe winter, how was Father Charbel able to live twenty-three years here spending every night of his life, kneeling on bamboo, in pain from midnight until the time of his Mass at 9:00 o'clock in the morning, fasting and immobile as the stone statue erected on the floor before the altar. Truly, this hermit was a saint. He endured fatigue, hunger, poverty and cold with the courage of a martyr. Every minute of his life was martyrdom, without complaint. No doubt he is now finding the reward of his marvelous martyrdom, with God."

Saint Sharbel Today

Many Catholics today wear a Saint Sharbel medal or a Saint Sharbel pendant to honor this holy saint who sacrificed himself so that others could see God.  Wearing a Saint Sharbel necklace is a reminder to be devoted to Jesus Christ and spread His word each and every day.
