Audiobook is 60:57 in length

The Sword in the Stone is real and you have to hear its amazing story!  St. Galgano was a Knight in Tuscany who lived a very worldly and sinful life, through a series of visions from St Micheal the Archangel he reformed his life, but when he started to lapse and despaired of his salvation he said “Ah, but I could more easily plunge my sword into this stone, than obtain forgiveness for my many sins” at that he thrust his sword into the rock up and it entered like a knife through butter. There is much more to his incredible story both during his life and miracles worked through his incorrupt relics after death!

The sword in the stone is still preserved today in a chapel that was built around it, the sword has been scientifically analyzed and authenticated to match the narrative of the story, read more here.  This is the first time a major work has been done on the Life of St. Galgano in English and has been a project of both Alleluia Audiobooks and Mediatrix Press. Saint Galgano remains an important Saint Today, and is in both the Roman Martyrlogy and his feast is celebrated on Dec 3 by the Militia Templi, as he is one of their Patrons.

    My son loved learning about St. Galgano. He now wants to take him as his Confirmation name. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Danny Diab says:

    Praise be to our Lord Jesus Christ! The life of Saint Galgano told here is powerful and moving, there is a certain violence in his conversion and penance that is so unfamiliar it almost scandalizes our modern sensibilities.

    “And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent bear it away.” -Matt 11:12

    Saint Galgano pray for us and teach us how to contemn the world and be truly converted

    Mary Queen of confessors, pray for us
    Thanks be to God always

    My grandson researched many saints for his Confirmation name. He finally picked St. Galgano. I was so taken by the story he told me I ordered the book about him. This book will be a gift for my grandson’s Confirmation. Thank you for blessing our family with your books. I look forward to reading more of them.
