Author Bio
The Rev. Father Lukas Etlin, O.S.B., was born in 1864 at Sarnen, Switzerland. While studying at Engelberg College, he responded to a call to the religious life and became a Benedictine monk in 1886. Upon the completion of his novitiate, he subsequently received Holy Orders in 1891. A year later, he began serving as chaplain of the Benedictine Nuns of Clyde, Missouri, and also founded a program called Caritas, which brought relief to those impoverished during the First World War. Besides releasing a considerable amount of pamphlets, including 'The Holy Eucharist: Our All' Father Etlin also published the Tabernacle and Purgatory periodical. He died in 1927 from an automobile accident, clutching his Rosaries.
