(Saint) Abbot (March 28) (6th century) A holy man of whom Saint Gregory the Great relates that for forty years he was totally blind, and that on recovering his sight he laboured for another fifteen years in the monasteries of Central Italy. He was a famous preacher. He had founded an Abbey at Nursia in Umbria; and to it he returned to die in one of the first years of the sixth century.
