      St. Fiacre of Breuil, & Kilfiachra (Ireland)
      (Fiachra, Fiaker, Fiacrius, Fialer, Fevre)
      -------------------------------------------------
      See yesterday's posting


      St. Rumon (Ruan)
      -------------------------------------------------
      6th century. This patron of the abbey of Tavistock and Romansleigh in
      Devonshire, and of Ruan Lanihorne, Ruan Major and Minor in Cornwall is
      reputed to have been a brother of Saint Tudwal (f.d. November 30).
      William of Malmesbury tells us that his "vita" was destroyed by the
      wars, but that Rumon was a bishop of an unidentified see. About this
      time a well-meaning canon provided a "vita" from Rumon by taking an
      abbreviated life of the Breton Saint Ronan (f.d. June 1) and changing
      the name to Rumon throughout. It does, however, describe the
      translation of Rumon's relics on January 5, 981, from Ruan Lanihorne, a
      Celtic monastery and the most ancient centre of his cultus, to
      Tavistock. Saint Rumon was highly venerated at Tavistock, the earl
      Ordulf built a church under his invocation in the 10th century and
      requested his relics, which remained there throughout the Middle Ages.
      Glastonbury also claimed Rumon's relics. He may have been a monk at
      Glastonbury, who founded a monastery on the Lizard Peninsula in
      Cornwall. He is also venerated in Norwich and Ramsey (Encyclopaedia,
      Farmer, Husenbeth).


      St. Loarn of Downpatrick
      -------------------------------------------------
      Born in western Ireland, 5th century. Saint Loarn was a disciple of
      Saint Patrick, whom some describe as a regionary bishop of Downpatrick
      (Benedictines).


      St. Ayle of Ireland, Missionary to Bavaria
      (Agilus Aile, Ail, Aisle, Ayeul, Ely) of Rebais, Abbot
      -------------------------------------------------
      Born c. 580; died 650. Saint Agilus, son of Childebert II's courtier
      Agnoald, followed the models of virtue found in his
      family. Upon the advice of Saint Columbanus (f.d. November 23), his
      parents consecrated him to God in the monastery of Luxeuil. After his
      father's death, Saint Columbanus had no defender in the Austrasian court
      leaving the way open for Brunehault to persecute the saint for refusing
      admittance of women into his monastery. Saint Agilus intervened by
      seeking an audience with King Thierry and convinced him to leave the
      monks in peace. Eventually, however, Columbanus was forced out and made
      his way to Bobbio, Italy. Saint Agilus remained at Luxeuil even after
      Saint Eustatius (f.d. March 29) succeeded its founder. After studying
      Scripture and the ways to Christian perfection, he and Saint Eustatius
      responded to the call of the bishops for evangelists to preach the
      Gospel in Bavaria. After a successful mission, Saint Agil returned to
      France and resumed his penitential exercises, until he was called to
      undertake the governance of the monastery of Rebais in the diocese of
      Meaux near Paris, which had been founded by Saint Ouen (f.d. August 24),
      where he was abbot until his death (Benedictines, Husenbeth).


      St. Modan, Hermit of Killmodan, Ulster, Ireland
      --------------------------------------------------


      St. Guthlac, Priest monk of Crowland, Lincolnshire
      Translation of his Relics
      --------------------------------------------------
