Book of Saints – Godfrey


(Geoffrey) (Saint) Bishop (November 8) (12th century) Born A.D. 1066, he was offered by his parents, when yet only five years old, to the monastery of Saint Quentin. He became a model monk, and as such was elected Abbot of Nogent, and later, much against his will, Bishop of Amiens. Comforter and helper of all in distress, he was distinguished throughout his life for his meekness and patience. His wish to retire among the Carthusians was frustrated by the entreaties of his Archbishop, clergy and people. He fell asleep in Christ at Soissons, A.D. 1115, in the fiftieth year of his age and the thirteenth of his Episcopate.
