      * St. Kessog of Lennox
      * St. Emilian of Lagny
      * St. Attalas of Bobbio
      * St. Himelin of Vissenaeken

      St. Failbhe the Little, Abbot
      -------------------------
      Died 754. Saint Failbhe was abbot of Iona for seven years before his
      death
      at age eighty (Benedictines).


      St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
      (also known as Mackessog)
      ----------------------------------------
      Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
      (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
      He
      left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
      missionary
      bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his headquarters, he
      evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred, though where is
      uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones was known as St.
      Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at Bandry was
      removed
      in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At that time, a stone
      statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the principal center of
      his
      cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the Bruce.

      Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
      celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
      For a
      long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but later
      changed
      it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog in a
      soldier's
      habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it (Benedictines, Delaney,
      Farmer, Husenbeth).


      St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
      ----------------------------
      (also known as Eminian)
      Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
      migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
      Lagny, France (Benedictines).


      St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
      -----------------------------
      Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
      Bishop
      Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lérins, but followed Saint
      Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
      missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
      Austrasian
      King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the Irish saint
      to
      Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
      granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
      615.
      It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out against
      the
      severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like Columbanus, a
      vigorous
      opponent of Arianism and was known for the miracles he performed. He
      died at
      Bobbio and was buried there in the same tomb as his predecessor
      (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopedia, Montague). Saint Attalas is
      portrayed
      in art as an abbot near a mill with his staff in hand. He may also have
      a
      chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
      venerated
      at Lérins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


      St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
      (also known as Hymelin)
      ---------------------------

      Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
      been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
      Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
      Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage center (Benedictines,
      Montague).

              St. Failbhe the Little, Abbot
              -------------------------
              Died 754. Saint Failbhe was abbot of Iona for seven years before his
              death at age eighty (Benedictines).


              St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
              (also known as Mackessog)
              ----------------------------------------
              Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
              (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
              He left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
              missionary bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his
              headquarters, he evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred,
              though where is uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones
              was known as St. Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at
              Bandry was removed in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At
              that time, a stone statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the
              principal centre of his cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the
              Bruce.

              Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
              celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
              For a long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but
              later changed it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog
              in a soldier's habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it
              (Benedictines, Delaney,
              Farmer, Husenbeth).

              Troparion of St Kessog Tone 6
              Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,/ and as thou
              didst devote thy life to missionary labours,/ teach us the way to devote
              our lives to the service of the Church/ that Christ our God will have
              mercy on our souls.

              Kontakion of St Kessog Tone 4
              That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O
              Wonderworker Kessog./ For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in
              heaven/ and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most
              unprofitable servants.



              St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
              ----------------------------
              (also known as Eminian)
              Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
              migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
              Lagny, France (Benedictines).


              St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
              -----------------------------
              Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
              Bishop Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lerins, but followed
              Saint Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
              missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
              Austrasian King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the
              Irish saint to
              Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
              granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
              615. It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out
              against the severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like
              Columbanus, a vigorous opponent of Arianism and was known for the
              miracles he performed. He died at Bobbio and was buried there in the
              same tomb as his predecessor (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia,
              Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
              with his staff in hand. He may also have a
              chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
              venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


              St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
              (also known as Hymelin)
              ---------------------------

              Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
              been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
              Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
              Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,
              Montague).

                  Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
                  with his staff in hand. He may also have a
                  chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
                  venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).

                  (also known as Hymelin)
                  ---------------------------

                  Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
                  been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
                  Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
                  Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,
                  Montague).

                    St. Failbhe the Little, Abbot
                    -------------------------
                    Died 754. Saint Failbhe was abbot of Iona for seven years before his
                    death at age eighty (Benedictines).


                    St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
                    (also known as Mackessog)
                    ----------------------------------------
                    Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
                    (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
                    He left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
                    missionary bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his
                    headquarters, he evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred,
                    though where is uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones
                    was known as St. Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at
                    Bandry was removed in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At
                    that time, a stone statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the
                    principal centre of his cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the
                    Bruce.

                    Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
                    celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
                    For a long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but
                    later changed it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog
                    in a soldier's habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it
                    (Benedictines, Delaney,
                    Farmer, Husenbeth).

                    Troparion of St Kessog Tone 6
                    Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,/ and as thou
                    didst devote thy life to missionary labours,/ teach us the way to devote
                    our lives to the service of the Church/ that Christ our God will have
                    mercy on our souls.

                    Kontakion of St Kessog Tone 4
                    That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O
                    Wonderworker Kessog./ For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in
                    heaven/ and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most
                    unprofitable servants.



                    St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
                    ----------------------------
                    (also known as Eminian)
                    Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
                    migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
                    Lagny, France (Benedictines).


                    St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
                    -----------------------------
                    Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
                    Bishop Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lerins, but followed
                    Saint Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
                    missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
                    Austrasian King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the
                    Irish saint to
                    Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
                    granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
                    615. It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out
                    against the severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like
                    Columbanus, a vigorous opponent of Arianism and was known for the
                    miracles he performed. He died at Bobbio and was buried there in the
                    same tomb as his predecessor (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia,
                    Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
                    with his staff in hand. He may also have a
                    chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
                    venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


                    St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
                    (also known as Hymelin)
                    ---------------------------

                    Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
                    been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
                    Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
                    Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,
                    Montague).

                        St. Failbhe the Little, Abbot
                        -------------------------
                        Died 754. Saint Failbhe was abbot of Iona for seven years before his
                        death at age eighty (Benedictines).


                        St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
                        (also known as Mackessog)
                        ----------------------------------------
                        Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
                        (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
                        He left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
                        missionary bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his
                        headquarters, he evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred,
                        though where is uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones
                        was known as St. Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at
                        Bandry was removed in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At
                        that time, a stone statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the
                        principal centre of his cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the
                        Bruce.

                        Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
                        celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
                        For a long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but
                        later changed it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog
                        in a soldier's habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it
                        (Benedictines, Delaney,
                        Farmer, Husenbeth).

                        Troparion of St Kessog Tone 6
                        Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,/ and as thou
                        didst devote thy life to missionary labours,/ teach us the way to devote
                        our lives to the service of the Church/ that Christ our God will have
                        mercy on our souls.

                        Kontakion of St Kessog Tone 4
                        That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O
                        Wonderworker Kessog./ For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in
                        heaven/ and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most
                        unprofitable servants.



                        St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
                        ----------------------------
                        (also known as Eminian)
                        Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
                        migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
                        Lagny, France (Benedictines).


                        St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
                        -----------------------------
                        Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
                        Bishop Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lerins, but followed
                        Saint Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
                        missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
                        Austrasian King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the
                        Irish saint to
                        Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
                        granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
                        615. It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out
                        against the severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like
                        Columbanus, a vigorous opponent of Arianism and was known for the
                        miracles he performed. He died at Bobbio and was buried there in the
                        same tomb as his predecessor (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia,
                        Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
                        with his staff in hand. He may also have a
                        chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
                        venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


                        St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
                        (also known as Hymelin)
                        ---------------------------

                        Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
                        been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
                        Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
                        Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,
                        Montague).

                            St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
                            (also known as Mackessog)
                            ----------------------------------------
                            Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
                            (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
                            He left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
                            missionary bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his
                            headquarters, he evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred,
                            though where is uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones
                            was known as St. Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at
                            Bandry was removed in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At
                            that time, a stone statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the
                            principal centre of his cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the
                            Bruce.

                            Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
                            celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
                            For a long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but
                            later changed it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog
                            in a soldier's habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it
                            (Benedictines, Delaney,
                            Farmer, Husenbeth).

                            Troparion of St Kessog Tone 6
                            Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,/ and as thou
                            didst devote thy life to missionary labours,/ teach us the way to devote
                            our lives to the service of the Church/ that Christ our God will have
                            mercy on our souls.

                            Kontakion of St Kessog Tone 4
                            That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O
                            Wonderworker Kessog./ For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in
                            heaven/ and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most
                            unprofitable servants.



                            St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
                            ----------------------------
                            (also known as Eminian)
                            Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
                            migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
                            Lagny, France (Benedictines).


                            St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
                            -----------------------------
                            Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
                            Bishop Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lerins, but followed
                            Saint Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
                            missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
                            Austrasian King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the
                            Irish saint to
                            Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
                            granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
                            615. It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out
                            against the severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like
                            Columbanus, a vigorous opponent of Arianism and was known for the
                            miracles he performed. He died at Bobbio and was buried there in the
                            same tomb as his predecessor (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia,
                            Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
                            with his staff in hand. He may also have a
                            chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
                            venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


                            St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
                            (also known as Hymelin)
                            ---------------------------

                            Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
                            been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
                            Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
                            Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,

                                St. Failbhe the Little, Abbot
                                -------------------------
                                Died 754. Saint Failbhe was abbot of Iona for seven years before his
                                death at age eighty (Benedictines).


                                St. Kessog of Lennox, Bishop & Martyr
                                (also known as Mackessog)
                                ----------------------------------------
                                Born in Cashel, Ulster, Ireland; died c. 560. Son of the king of Cashel
                                (Munster), Saint Kessog is said to have worked miracles even as a child.
                                He left Ireland to evangelize Scotland, where he was consecrated a
                                missionary bishop. Using Monks' Island in Loch Lomond as his
                                headquarters, he evangelized the surrounding area until he was martyred,
                                though where is uncertain--some claim at Bandry where a heap of stones
                                was known as St. Kessog's Cairn, and others abroad. Part of the cairn at
                                Bandry was removed in the 18th century to clear the way for a road. At
                                that time, a stone statue of Kessog was found inside it. Luss was the
                                principal centre of his cultus with a sanctuary granted by Robert the
                                Bruce.

                                Many miracles were ascribed to Kessog, who is the patron of Lennox. A
                                celebrated Scottish church still bears the title of St. Kessoge-Kirk.
                                For a long time the Scots used his name for their cry in battle, but
                                later changed it for that of Saint Andrew. They sometimes painted Kessog
                                in a soldier's habit, holding a bow bent with an arrow in it
                                (Benedictines, Delaney,
                                Farmer, Husenbeth).

                                Troparion of St Kessog Tone 6
                                Thy life was resplendent with miracles, O Hierarch Kessog,/ and as thou
                                didst devote thy life to missionary labours,/ teach us the way to devote
                                our lives to the service of the Church/ that Christ our God will have
                                mercy on our souls.

                                Kontakion of St Kessog Tone 4
                                That God is not served by idleness is the message of thy life, O
                                Wonderworker Kessog./ For thy ceaseless efforts thou art rewarded in
                                heaven/ and this day art praised by the Lord's lazy and most
                                unprofitable servants.



                                St. Emilian of Lagny, Abbot
                                ----------------------------
                                (also known as Eminian)
                                Died 675. Saint Emilian was another of the Irish missionary-monks, who
                                migrated to the Continent, where he became the abbot of a monastery in
                                Lagny, France (Benedictines).


                                St. Attalas of Bobbio, Abbot
                                -----------------------------
                                Born in Burgundy, France; died 627. Saint Attalas was educated under
                                Bishop Aregius of Gap, professed himself a monk at Lerins, but followed
                                Saint Columbanus to Luxeuil in search of a stricter rule. When the Irish
                                missionaries were expelled from France because Columbanus decried
                                Austrasian King Theodoric for keeping concubines, Attalas went with the
                                Irish saint to
                                Bobbio, Italy. He helped Columbanus build the abbey in Bobbio on land
                                granted them by the Lombard King Agilulf and succeeded him as abbot in
                                615. It was during Attalas's abbacy that most of the monks stood out
                                against the severity of the Columbanian Rule. Attalas was, like
                                Columbanus, a vigorous opponent of Arianism and was known for the
                                miracles he performed. He died at Bobbio and was buried there in the
                                same tomb as his predecessor (Benedictines, Delaney, Encyclopaedia,
                                Montague). Saint Attalas is portrayed in art as an abbot near a mill
                                with his staff in hand. He may also have a
                                chair near him or be shown with Saint Columbanus (Roeder). He is
                                venerated at Lerins and Luxeuil (Roeder).


                                St. Himelin of Vissenaeken
                                (also known as Hymelin)
                                ---------------------------

                                Died c. 750. Saint Himelin, an Irish or Scottish priest, is said to have
                                been the brother of Saint Rumold of Malines. He died and was buried at
                                Vissenaeken, near Tirlemont, Belgium, on his return from a pilgrimage to
                                Rome. His shrine, in turn, is a noted pilgrimage centre (Benedictines,
                                Montague).
