    St. Bruno was my Confirmation Saint

    I wonder how he was able to make fasting part of his life. I am completely out of control.

    I think it helped that in his environment there was so little good food?

    When you're not in control of the kitchen and fast food isn't around the corner, I'm sure fasting can come easier.

    How did you come to choose St. Bruno? He seems an atypical choice for a lad.

    I thought I wanted to be a Trappist. When I showed my mom the brochures she talked me out of it, or at least had me look into diocesan Priesthood.

    This was right before VaticanII. Probably Divine Providence knew I would not do well in the 60's and 70's as a Priest... either carried away with the nonsense, or isolated.

    At the time, St. Bruno impressed me, although I can't remember the specifics anymore.

    I still like him around for times when a denying-hermit attitude is required.
