Boniface of Mainz, Missionary and Archbishop

June 5th marks the 1256th anniversary of the death of Winfrid of Wynfryth, Apostle to the Germans. Following the collapse of the old Roman empire, it was left to Christians from the British Isles to bring Christianity back to the European continent.

Through this tireless servant of the Word, God blessed generations of Germans and Scandinavians with the life-giving Word and Sacraments of Christ. This set the stage for the Reformation (8 centuries later) wherein God would use Christians from Germany to shine the bright light of His holy Word to the whole Christian Church on earth.
