Saint Hugh

Born about 1186 at Alessandria (Italy), he became a knight of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem. After lengthy campaigning in the Holy Land, he was elected Master of the Commandery of St. John di Prè in Genoa (Italy) and worked in the infirmary nearby. But he was quite comely and amiable toward all. He served the poor with love and tact, giving them food, money, spiritual comfort and brotherly love. He washed their feet. He took care of them, and when they died, he buried them. The eight-pointed cross was not only on his cloak; he wore it in his heart. He was renowned for miraculous powers over the natural elements. He is believed to have died in 1233. (Feast: 8 October)
