Calendar of Scottish Saints – Saint Chroman or Ghronan, A.D. 641


4 January. On account of the destruction of so many ecclesiastical records at the Reformation, many particulars regarding some of our Scottish saints have been irrevocably lost. This is the case with the holy man before us. All that we know of him may be told in a few words. He lived in the Cunningham district of Ayrshire, where he was revered during life and venerated after death for his great sanctity. On his deathbed we are told he kept continually repeating those words of the 83rd Psalm, “My soul longeth and fainteth for the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh have rejoiced in the Living God.”
