Saints of the Day – Blessed Conrad of Mondsee, O.S.B., Abbot, Martyr


Born near Trèves (Trier), Germany; died near Mondsee, Austria, 1145. Conrad Bosinlother became a Benedictine at Siegburg. In 1127, he was appointed abbot of Mondsee (Lunaelacensis), Upper Austria. His firmness in reclaiming the alienated possessions of the abbey led some nobles to murder him at Oberwang nearby. From the time of his death, he was publicly venerated at his abbey as a martyr (Benedictines).
