A Saint Should Not Only Be A Bernard

The first evidence that Saint Bernards were in use at the monastery is in two paintings dating to 1690 by Italian artist Salvator Rosa. The most famous Saint Bernard to save people at the pass was Barry (sometimes spelled Berry), who reportedly saved somewhere between 40 and 100 lives. 

The earliest written records of the Saint Bernard are from monks at the Great St Bernard Hospice at the Great St Bernard Pass in 1707, with paintings and drawings of the dog dating even earlier.[7] Early British accounts of the breed described the breed as the Alpine Spaniel.[8]

It was reported that Saint Bernards saved somewhere between 40 and 100 lives. What about us as Saints? Are we on a mission to find and rescue lost souls? Jesus Christ understood His mission to “Seek and save the lost” (Luke 19:10). We must fulfill our mission too. (Matthew 28:19-20)

Many perform mission through blogging reaching all nations. Preachers and spiritual teachers reach all nations through various social media platforms, and others share daily devotions through apps and e-mails.

We cannot be apathetic and complacent when it comes to lost souls. Are we not thankful for those who led us out of darkness? A saint should not only be a Bernard in a world of lost souls. Are we single-minded like the Saint Bernard diligently searching for lost souls?

FINAL THOUGHT

A Saint Bernard can rescue and save the body, but Christian Saints can help rescue to save the soul. (2 Timothy 4:1-22)
