Book of Saints – Landelinus


(Saint) Abbot (June 15) (7th century) Nobly born in the North of France, though carefully brought up by Saint Aubert of Cambrai, he walked for a time in the broad way of perdition, until the sudden death of one of his companions made him turn to God. He entered an austere monastery and, having been promoted to the priesthood, retired to a desert place on the River Sambre, where he founded the Abbey of Lobbes (Laubacum), of which he gave the government to Saint Wismar, and later that of Crepy (Crespiacum) where he died A.D. 686. Like his saintly contemporaries of the North-East of France and of Belgium, Saint Landelinus was a zealous missionary and unsparing of himself in his efforts to convert the heathen.
