In portraying St. Sharbel, Fr. Hanna Skandar states in his book “Saint Sharbel, From His Era to Ours”:
“His face reflected his devotion and love of God at all times, particularly during prayer. A heavenly light illuminated his face because the Lord was his strength, his wealth and his permanent joy. His naturally pale face was tanned by the sun. Due to many mortifications of the flesh and long nights of prayerful vigil, he became very thin, but he walked quickly even in his old age. He was ardent in all his affairs.”
Saint Sharbel, pray for us.
