CATALDUS (Saint) Bishop (May 10) (7th century) The most illustrious of the several Irish Saints of that name. Born in Munster he became the disciple and successor of Saint Carthage in the famous School of Lismore. He is believed to have been consecrated a Bishop in Ireland. But on his return from a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the people of Taranto in Southern Italy constrained him to accept the government of their Church. Many miracles are attributed to his intercession. He flourished early in the seventh century.
