      * St. Buithe of Monasterboice
      * St. Dima of the Mercians
      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


      St. Buithe (Buite, Boethius) of Monasterboice & Scotland
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      Died 521. Saint Buithe was a Scot who spent some years in Italy and
      elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
      the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
      Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In
      gratitude the king gave the saint a church-- Carbuddo ("Castrum
      Butthi"), which appears to have taken its name from him (originally
      Kirkbuddo or the church of Buithe).

      About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
      which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking
      raids threatened the great schools of Ireland. This school was known
      for its sculpture; the Crosses of Monasterboice are world renowned. They
      incorporate representation of Biblical subjects directly on the Crosses,
      visual lessons for the faithful and less likely to be destroyed than
      were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
      from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
      Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old
      Gaelic books, especially in the "Book of Leinster" (Benedictines,
      D'Arcy, Healy, Kenney, Montague, Moran, Porter, Simpson,Skene, Stokes).

      Great wonderworker and ascetic, O Father Buithe, who by the power of thy
      prayers didst restore the slain to life,/ intercede with Christ our God
      that He will grant us life eternal in the realms of the blessed.

      St. Diuma (Dimma, Dima),
      Bishop of the Mercians and Middle Anglians
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Died 658; feast day may actually be on May 5. Saint Diuma, often
      thought to be a woman because of the form of his name, was an Irish or
      Scottish priest, who was sent with Saints Cedd (f.d. October 26), Betti,
      and Adda by Bishop Saint Finan of Lindisfarne (f.d. February 17) to
      evangelize the Mercians following the baptism of Peada, son of their
      king, Penda. The Venerable Bede (f.d. May 25) records that their
      apostolate was extremely successful. Following Penda's death and the
      ascension of the Christian Oswiu to the throne in 654, Diuma was
      consecrated bishop of the Mercians and Middle Angles by
      Finan. An 11th-century menology records the Diuma was buried at
      Charlbury (Oxon.) (Benedictines, Farmer).

              elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
              the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
              Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In gratitude

              About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
              which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking

              St. Diuma (Dimma, Dima),
              Bishop of the Mercians and Middle Anglians
              ------------------------------------------------------------
              Died 658; feast day may actually be on May 5. Saint Diuma, often thought
              to be a woman because of the form of his name, was an Irish or Scottish
              priest, who was sent with Saints Cedd (f.d. October 26), Betti, and Adda
              by Bishop Saint Finan of Lindisfarne (f.d. February 17) to evangelize
              the Mercians following the baptism of Peada, son of their king, Penda.
              The Venerable Bede (f.d. May 25) records that their apostolate was
              extremely successful. Following Penda's death and the
              ascension of the Christian Oswiu to the throne in 654, Diuma was
              consecrated bishop of the Mercians and Middle Angles by Finan. An
              11th-century menology records the Diuma was buried at Charlbury (Oxon.)
              (Benedictines, Farmer).

                St. Buithe (Buite, Boethius) of Monasterboice & Scotland
                ----------------------------------------------------------
                Died 521. Saint Buithe was a Scot who spent some years in Italy and
                elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
                the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
                Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In gratitude
                the king gave the saint a church-- Carbuddo ("Castrum Butthi"), which
                appears to have taken its name from him (originally Kirkbuddo or the
                church of Buithe).

                About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
                which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking
                raids threatened the great schools of Ireland. This school was known for
                its sculpture; the Crosses of Monasterboice are world renowned. They
                incorporate representation of Biblical subjects directly on the Crosses,
                visual lessons for the faithful and less likely to be destroyed than
                were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
                from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
                Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old Gaelic books, especially

                    ------------------------------------------------------------
                    Died 658; feast day may actually be on May 5. Saint Diuma, often thought
                    to be a woman because of the form of his name, was an Irish or Scottish
                    priest, who was sent with Saints Cedd (f.d. October 26), Betti, and Adda
                    by Bishop Saint Finan of Lindisfarne (f.d. February 17) to evangelize

                      * St. Buithe of Monasterboice
                      * St. Dima of the Mercians
                      =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


                      St. Buithe (Buite, Boethius) of Monasterboice & Scotland
                      ----------------------------------------------------------
                      Died 521. Saint Buithe was a Scot who spent some years in Italy and
                      elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
                      the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
                      Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In gratitude
                      the king gave the saint a church-- Carbuddo ("Castrum Butthi"), which
                      appears to have taken its name from him (originally Kirkbuddo or the
                      church of Buithe).

                      About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
                      which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking
                      raids threatened the great schools of Ireland. This school was known for
                      its sculpture; the Crosses of Monasterboice are world renowned. They
                      incorporate representation of Biblical subjects directly on the Crosses,
                      visual lessons for the faithful and less likely to be destroyed than
                      were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
                      from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
                      Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old Gaelic books, especially
                      in the "Book of Leinster" (Benedictines, D'Arcy, Healy, Kenney,
                      Montague, Moran, Porter, Simpson,Skene, Stokes).

                          St. Buithe (Buite, Boethius) of Monasterboice & Scotland
                          ----------------------------------------------------------
                          Died 521. Saint Buithe was a Scot who spent some years in Italy and
                          elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
                          the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
                          Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In gratitude
                          the king gave the saint a church-- Carbuddo ("Castrum Butthi"), which
                          appears to have taken its name from him (originally Kirkbuddo or the
                          church of Buithe).

                          About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
                          which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking
                          raids threatened the great schools of Ireland. This school was known for
                          its sculpture; the Crosses of Monasterboice are world renowned. They
                          incorporate representation of Biblical subjects directly on the Crosses,
                          visual lessons for the faithful and less likely to be destroyed than
                          were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
                          from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
                          Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old Gaelic books, especially
                          in the "Book of Leinster" (Benedictines, D'Arcy, Healy, Kenney,
                          Montague, Moran, Porter, Simpson,Skene, Stokes).

                          Great wonderworker and ascetic, O Father Buithe, who by the power of thy
                          prayers didst restore the slain to life,/ intercede with Christ our God
                          that He will grant us life eternal in the realms of the blessed.

                          St. Diuma (Dimma, Dima),
                          Bishop of the Mercians and Middle Anglians
                          ------------------------------------------------------------
                          Died 658; feast day may actually be on May 5. Saint Diuma, often thought
                          to be a woman because of the form of his name, was an Irish or Scottish
                          priest, who was sent with Saints Cedd (f.d. October 26), Betti, and Adda
                          by Bishop Saint Finan of Lindisfarne (f.d. February 17) to evangelize
                          the Mercians following the baptism of Peada, son of their king, Penda.
                          The Venerable Bede (f.d. May 25) records that their apostolate was
                          extremely successful. Following Penda's death and the
                          ascension of the Christian Oswiu to the throne in 654, Diuma was
                          consecrated bishop of the Mercians and Middle Angles by Finan. An
                          11th-century menology records the Diuma was buried at Charlbury (Oxon.)
                          (Benedictines, Farmer).

                              were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
                              from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
                              Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old Gaelic books, especially
                              in the "Book of Leinster" (Benedictines, D'Arcy, Healy, Kenney,
                              Montague, Moran, Porter, Simpson,Skene, Stokes).

                              St. Diuma (Dimma, Dima),
                              Bishop of the Mercians and Middle Anglians
                              ------------------------------------------------------------
                              Died 658; feast day may actually be on May 5. Saint Diuma, often thought
                              to be a woman because of the form of his name, was an Irish or Scottish
                              priest, who was sent with Saints Cedd (f.d. October 26), Betti, and Adda
                              by Bishop Saint Finan of Lindisfarne (f.d. February 17) to evangelize
                              the Mercians following the baptism of Peada, son of their king, Penda.
                              The Venerable Bede (f.d. May 25) records that their apostolate was
                              extremely successful. Following Penda's death and the
                              ascension of the Christian Oswiu to the throne in 654, Diuma was
                              consecrated bishop of the Mercians and Middle Angles by Finan. An
                              11th-century menology records the Diuma was buried at Charlbury (Oxon.)
                              (Benedictines, Farmer).

                                St. Buithe (Buite, Boethius) of Monasterboice & Scotland
                                ----------------------------------------------------------
                                Died 521. Saint Buithe was a Scot who spent some years in Italy and
                                elsewhere on the continent before returning to Scotland to evangelize
                                the Picts. It is said that Buithe raised the son of King Nectan of the
                                Picts from the dead (or the king himself in some versions). In gratitude
                                the king gave the saint a church-- Carbuddo ("Castrum Butthi"), which
                                appears to have taken its name from him (originally Kirkbuddo or the
                                church of Buithe).

                                About 500 AD, Buithe founded a school at Monasterboice in County Louth,
                                which gained dominance in the 9th and 10th centuries when the Viking
                                raids threatened the great schools of Ireland. This school was known for
                                its sculpture; the Crosses of Monasterboice are world renowned. They
                                incorporate representation of Biblical subjects directly on the Crosses,
                                visual lessons for the faithful and less likely to be destroyed than
                                were books. Two of these crosses, including the Muireadach Cross dating
                                from 923, survive at Monasterboice. Fourteen historical poems of its
                                Abbot Flann (11th century) also survive in old Gaelic books, especially
