Extract from Saint Thorlac Thorhallsson:  “Saint Thorlac was born in the south of Iceland in 1133. His parents were quite poor. They lost their farm and the family broke up while he was still a boy. . . .  Before he was 20 Thorlac became a priest. . . . He was 6 years in Paris, France and then some time in Lincoln, England. . . . Thorlac worked hard to reform the nation (Iceland) and to strengthen the Church. . . . Thorlac lived a holy life and after his death hundreds of miracles were attributed to his intercession..” See picture of Saint Thorlac Thorhallsson.
