(Walafridus) (Saint) Bishop (October 12) (8th century) A monk of Lindisfarne and one of the most celebrated Bishops of the Anglo-Saxon Church. Consecrated Archbishop of York, he sacrificed himself utterly for the good of his flock. He was more than once banished from his country, and frequently visited Rome. Even while journeying, he preached with zeal and success. Hence, he is venerated as one of the Apostles of Holland, as also of Sussex and of the Isle of Wight. He entered into his rest, April 24, A.D. 709.
