      In the old monastery of Luxeuil (Luxovium), in the diocese of BesanР·on,
      Saint Emmon, monk. The Acts of Saint Adelph (11 September)
      teach us that when that saint came to see his brethren of Luxeuil, to die
      among them, Emmon was the one that had the blessing of taking
      care of the illustrious ill.


      St. Flannon of Killaloe
      ------------------------------------------------------------------
      7th century. In Killaloe, a small town of Ireland, in Co. Munster and Co.
      Clare, Saint Flannan, first bishop of that See and confessor. Son of King
      Theodoric (probably Theodoric II, 4th king of Orleans, 3rd king of Burgundy
      and 7th king of Metz or Austrasia (587-613), he was consecrated, c. 639,
      by Pope John IV, and endowed the Church greatly. He was entombed in his
      cathedral of Killaloe.
