Comments

Excellent!

St. Nuno, Holy Constable/Holy Monk, pray for us.

Mark Brumley

Went to war at age 13, huh? Interesting.

Sandra Miesel

Maybe he was big for his age. The Black Prince had actually commanded in his early teens. I think Nuno must have been in a minor role.

Ricardo Leal

Very interesting post. Brazilian readers will be glad to remember or discover Saint Nuno´s role as founder of the Bragantine dynasty, inextricably associated with our (I´m Brazilian myself) history. For the odd Portuguese reader out there, a link to Camoens´ references to Dom Nuno in the Lusiadas:

Fernando Pessoa famously called him "S. Portugal em ser"; "Saint Portugal in essence". http://www.tabacaria.com.pt/Mensagem/Brazao/NUNALVARES.htm

Tim Heinan

St. Nuno's love (even for his enemies), his prayerfulness, and his service to the poor have inspired many in the United States and Mexico who have become part of the prayer apostolate of the Blessed Nuno Society. www.blessednuno.org
