Br. Labre

Now I get it.  I was talking to Br. Labre, last night and I didn't understand his name.  I thought he was saying La Bra, or Labera, or Laberae, or L'Abre.  Finally, I realized that since he is a Little Brothers of Saint Francis, who ministers to the homeless, his name might be associated with homelessness.  Voila,

St. Benedict Joseph Labre – Patron Saint of the Homeless

The Little Brothers strive to live the Holy Gospel among the poorest of the poor in prayer and presence.
