(Saint) Abbot (February 8) (12th century) A French Saint, Founder of the Religious Order called of Grandimount, from the place in Auvergne where its first house was established. The life of these monks, over whom Saint Stephen presided for fifty years, was that of hermits devoted to prayer and penitential exercises, after the manner of some then flourishing in Southern Italy, whom Saint Stephen 248 had visited. He died A.D. 1126 at the age of seventy, and many miracles wrought at his tomb bore witness to his sanctity.
