ST. WALTER of PONTOISE
DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
St. Walter of Pontoise was an French Benedictine of the eleventh century who became the Abbot of Pontoise and worked to eradicate corruption and abuses and lax discipline among the monks.
While yet a novice, he helped a prisoner escape from the monastery prison. Later, as an abbot, he was beaten and imprisoned for a time by monks who resented his reforms. For these reasons, he is regarded as a patron saint of prisoners.
