St. Hubert with Diamond CrossSt. Hubert, the patron saint of hunters, had a vision while hunting and pursuing a magnificent stag. The animal turned to face him, and he was astounded to perceive a crucifix standing between its antlers. The Lord spoke to him at this time. During his vision he was told to hold animals in higher regard and have compassion for them as God’s creatures. St. Hubert is known as the patron saint of hunters, mathematicians, opticians and metalworkers.
