The Sword in the Stone is real and you have to hear its amazing story! St. Galgano was a Knight in Tuscany who lived a very worldly and sinful life, through a series of visions from St Micheal the Archangel he reformed his life, but when he started to lapse and despaired of his salvation he said “Ah, but I could more easily plunge my sword into this stone, than obtain forgiveness for my many sins” at that he thrust his sword into the rock up and it entered like a knife through butter. There is much more to his incredible story both during his life and miracles worked through his incorrupt relics after death!
The sword in the stone is still preserved today in a chapel that was built around it, the sword has been scientifically analyzed and authenticated to match the narrative of the story, read more here. This is the first time a major work has been done on the Life of St. Galgano in English and has been a project of both Alleluia Audiobooks and Mediatrix Press. Saint Galgano remains an important Saint Today, and is in both the Roman Martyrlogy and his feast is celebrated on Dec 3 by the Militia Templi, as he is one of their Patrons.
