Venerable Matt Talbot, a Secular Franciscan, was born in Dublin, Ireland to a poor family. After little education, he obtained work for liquor merchants as a teen and started drinking  excessively for 15 years. Then at 28, he took the “pledge” to stop drinking and kept it, by daily Mass, spiritual reading, hard work and penance until he died in 1925.  He would have been unknown if it were not for the penitential chains found on his body.
