(Rumbold, Rombauld) (July 1) (Saint) Bishop Martyr (8th century) The Patron Saint of Malines in Belgium. An Irishman by birth, he journeyed to Rome, where he was consecrated Bishop and charged with the preaching of Christianity in Brabant. His mission there, eminently successful, was extended from time to time to the neighbouring provinces. On one of his journeys, he was set upon and barbarously slain by evil-doers (A.D. 775). His shrine is in Malines Cathedral.
