So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

St Hubertus

1 Comment

St Hubertus is the patron saint of hunters. He was a rich, debauched medieval prince who while out hunting one day suddenly saw a white stag and took off after him. When he finally caught the stag, he saw Jesus. So he was so amazed, he immediately repented and for the rest of his life was a good Christian and person!

This is the Chapel at Mariapfarr.  (I know the picture’s a bit crooked, that was me!) There is a big hunting community here, and so there are lots of these chapels too. I particularly like this one. Just love the Haflinger horse and the hounds that are so popular here.

What do you think?

One thought on “St Hubertus

  1. I had NO IDEA!! We live near a village called Hubertus!! I always wondered where that name came from. Thanks for the lesson! I will be sharing that. We have lots of hunters around here to.
