      St. Austell, Monk of Cornwall, Disciple of Saint Mevan
      (Austol, Hawystill)
      --------------------------------------------------------
      6th century; died at Saint-Meen, Brittany, France. The Cornish monk
      Austell was the godson and a disciple of Saint Meen (f.d. June 21). He
      probably lived near Saint Austell in Cornwall, which now preserves his
      name and adjoins the parish of Saint Mewan (Meen). When Meen followed
      Saint Samson (f.d. July 28) from Wales to Brittany, Austell accompanied
      him. Together they evangelized the Broceliande district and were buried
      in the same tomb. He may have left his name to Aust of Awst in
      Gloucester (Attwater2, Attwater2, Benedictines, Encyclopaedia, Farmer).

      Troparion of St Austol tone 7
      Light of Cornwall and pillar of the Faith,/ holy Austol, disciple of
      Samson:/ thou wast a fellow-labourer with Saint Mewan,/ in such
      companionship that thou didst die with him and share his grave./ Pray to
      Christ our God to grant us His great mercy.


      St. Crummine, Bishop of Lackan, County Westmeath, Ireland,
      Disciple of Saint Padraig
      --------------------------------------------------------
      5th century. Saint Crummine was a disciple of Saint Patrick (f.d.March
      17), who put him in charge of the church of Leccuine (Lackan) in County
      Wearmeath (Benedictines).


      St. Egilo (Egilon, Eigil) of Pruem, Abbot
      --------------------------------------------------------
      Died 871. Saint Egilo was a monk of Croyland Abbey, who was martyred
      with his abbot and many of his community by the invading Danes
      (Benedictines).
