November 29

Frederick of Regensburg (died 1329) was an Augustinian Brother known for his generosity, humility, dedication to prayer and devotion to the Eucharist.

Many legends exist about Frederick, but documented factual information is scarce.

He was born in Regensburg, Bavaria, Germany. He joined the Order of Saint Augustine at Saint Nicholas Monastery in his native city.

Frederick worked in the monastery as a wood cutter and carpenter. His love for prayer, generous charity, devotion to the Blessed Sacrament and humility were evident to all in the community.

He died November 29, 1329 in Regensburg. He is buried at St. Cecelia Church, Regensburg. Following his death, many miracles were credited to his intercession. He is sometimes called Frederick of Ratisbon. Pope Pius X proclaimed him Blessed in 1909.
