Book of Saints – Regulus – 30 March

main article for Saint Regulus of ScotlandArticle

(Rule) (Saint) Abbot (March 30) (4th century) According to Scottish tradition, Saint Rule was a holy man to whom in the time of the Emperor Constantine it was by Divine direction committed to carry away to the ends of the earth a portion of the Relics of Saint Andrew the Apostle. Hence, coming to Pagan Scotland, he enshrined them in the place since called Saint Andrews, and there presided until his death over a community of fervent Christians. Other and more likely accounts of the Translation of the Relics of Saint Andrew to Scotland put it at a much later date, and connect it with the name of the Scottish King Constantine, about the middle of the fifth century.
