Book of Saints – Clodulphus


CLODULPHUS (CLOU) (Saint) Bishop (June 8) (7th century) He was the son of Saint Arnulph (minister of King Clotaire II, and later Bishop of Metz) and born A.D. 605. Brought up at Court, he had a brilliant future before him, but preferring the service of the Church, he was elected Bishop of Metz (A.D. 656) and discharged with wonderful zeal and charity his pastoral duties. He was distinguished above all for his care of the poor. He died A.D. 696, at the age of ninety-one years, and was buried in his church at Metz. In the tenth century a great part of his relics were translated to the Abbey of Lay, near Nancy.
