On May 7, Norbertines celebrate the feast of the transfer of the body of Saint Norbert from his original burial place in Magdeburg, Germany, in 1135, to his final resting place in Prague, Czech Republic, in 1627. Saint Norbert’s remains are above the side altar in the Abbey Church of Strahov.

In today’s Gospel Jesus says, “Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him …I shall raise… on the last day.” Saint Norbert saw and believed.
