      St. Cera of Kilkeary, Virgin

      (Benedictines).


      St. Convoyon (Conwoion) of Redon, Abbot

      Vannes, recluse, monk at Glanfeuil, and finally, in 831, abbot-founder
      of the great abbey of Saint Saviour near Redon, Brittany. He was driven
      from his abbey by the Norsemen and died in exile (Benedictines).

      Troparion of St Ruman Tone 5
      Thou didst dazzle us with a jewel, a treasure,/ a pearl of great price,
      O righteous Father Ruman,/ in the God-pleasing life and asceticism of
      the desert./ Thy selfless devotion, love of animals/ and patience in the
      face of calumny are our guiding lights./ Wherefore, O Saint, pray that
      the unprofitable servants who hymn thee/ be granted great mercy.

      Kontakion of St Ruman Tone 5
      Today we keep festival in thy honour, holy Ruman,/ for caring nothing
      for thyself/ thou didst face danger, false accusation and misdirected
      piety/ for the love of Him Who is the Creator of all things.
