(Remy) (Saint) Bishop (October 1) (6th century) Born in Gaul A.D. 439, he was consecrated Archbishop of Rheims when only twenty-two years of age, and governed that illustrious Church for over seventy years. He was looked up to as the most learned and most eloquent Prelate of his Age. He is the Apostle of the Franks, of whom he baptised over three thousand, together with their King Clovis. He died January 13, A.D. 533, and has ever since been venerated as one of the greatest glories of the French Church. His Festival is generally kept on October 1, anniversary of the Translation of his Relics.
