Book of Saints – Berno


BERNO (Saint) Abbot (January 13) (10th century) Born in Burgundy about the middle of the ninth century, he took the religious habit in the Abbey of Saint Martin of Autun, and fifty years later founded those of Gigny and Baume. But he is chiefly known as the first Abbot of Cluny near Macon, a famous Benedictine monastery, cradle of the great Religious Congregation of the same name. In his old age Saint Berno resigned his crozier to his disciple Saint Odo (A.D. 926), dying in the following year.
