Book of Saints – Fortchern


(Saint) (February 14) (5th century) One of the early converts made by Saint Patrick in Ireland, the son of a chieftain of Trim. He devoted himself to the service of the Apostle and is said from feelings of humility to have refused to be consecrated Bishop. His story is mixed up with that of Saint Loman, and modern critics are inclined to post-date the two Saints to a later century.
