Memorial

Profile

Benedictine monk. Abbot of Orbais. Archbishop of Rheims, France. Persecuted and exiled by Charles Martel. While he was away, another was appointed bishop. He eventually returned to his see, but to prevent scandal and dissention among the faithful, he did not try to recover his bishopric, and spent the rest of his days as a hermit. Noted for his patience, and as a miracle worker.
